Northern Thailand hit by another quake


A 5.5-magnitude earthquake struck northern Thailand on Friday, one day after a tremor hit neighbouring Myanmar and killed at least 50 people.

There are no reports of any injuries or damage as yet.

On Thursday, a 6.8-magnitude tremor struck Myanmar, about 110 kilometres from the border with Thailand.

It destroyed over 100 buildings and injured at least 40 people.

Thursday’s tremor also caused some limited damage in Thailand’s northern province of Chiang Rai.

Police said one woman was killed when the wall of a house collapsed in the province’s Mae Sai district.

Power was briefly cut and some telephone lines were knocked down.
