Storms damaged 41 houses in three villages in Nong Khai’s Fao Rai district on Sunday evening, district chief Charoenjit Suebsaowong said after surveying the sites the next morning.



Rain, high winds and hail swept through Ban Jab Mai (Moo 3), where 15 homes were damaged, Tha Hai Sok (Moo 4), affecting 20 homes, and Tha Samran (Moo 7), where six homes were affected.

Charoenjit said his team would carry out more detailed inspections to determine what aid was needed.

Tha Samran resident Niyon Saenbuapho, 64, said his family was having dinner when a hailstorm struck, followed by strong winds that ripped off a large section of the roof.
