100 houses damaged after storm hits Nakhon Ratchasima districts | The Thaiger

A tropical storm has left more than 100 houses damaged after it hit Nakhon Ratchasima province, north-east of Bangkok, yesterday.

Nakhon Ratchasima’s Governor Wichian Chantanothai says… “We are in the process of surveying damages.”

He made the comment as he was handing out relief items to storm victims in Sikhiu district. He said authorities planned to ask soldiers to help with repairing the homes of victims.

Nong Sung, Chaloem Phra Kiat, and Nong Bunnak districts were also affected by the storm.

The Governor advised people to check the structure of their houses because there could be several more storms during the season change (between hot season and wet season).

“Local administrative bodies, meanwhile, must check billboards to ensure they are well secured,” he said.

Several big boards have previously fallen down during storms in Thailand, causing both casualties and property damage.

The province has hot and dry conditions expected over the next few days.

Cabinet waives tolls for 8 days over Songkran break | The Thaiger

Thailand’s cabinet has decided to waive tolls on the Bangkok-Pattaya and Bangkok-Bang Pa-in-Bang Phli motorways starting April 10 until midnight on April 18. This takes in the main Songkran break between April 12 – 14 and the annual ‘seven days of danger’.

A Cabinet spokesperson say that a large number of people are expected to leave Bangkok for the provinces during the annual Songkran festival, so the cabinet decided to waive the toll fees to make travel a bit easier and less expensive.

Official holidays for the Songkran festival are from April 12-16, but many families are expected to set out 1-2 days before to avoid heavy traffic on the three main arteries to the northern, northeastern and southern regions.

The Transport Company will be adding extra buses to cope with the increased volumes of travellers and airlines have added flights to the schedule, while more trains will be provided during the holiday period.
