Many houses were damaged when four districts of Phitsanulok province were hit by thunderstorms on Monday night, authorities said.
Storms pummelled Bang Rakam, Phrom Phiram, Noen Maprang and Muang districts at about 9.30pm, according to reports. They left behind damaged houses and downed trees and power poles throughout the districts.
In Muang district alone some 30 houses were damaged and four trees uprooted by the strong winds, which also blew away tents selling food for the Songkran festival on the Nan River bank.
Officials have yet to survey the damage in other areas.
