Summer storms damage buildings in Mueang and Saraphi

Summer storms through the Chiang Mai metro area yesterday, May 28 damaged buildings in both Mueang and Saraphi Districts.

In Mueang, a tree came down on a home on Charoen Mueang Road Soi 5 in Wat Ket. It was initially believed that two people were injured but later found that there were no injuries. The tree caused damage to the roof of the house.

In Moo 5 Don Kaeo, Saraphi, a garage collapsed damaging two vehicles. No one was injured.

While storm damage is never welcomed, the rain itself is welcome after nearly two weeks without rain in the metro area.

Further rain is forecast with a 60% chance of storms today, May 29 with more rain forecast into next week.
