School Building in Mae Sot hit by a Landslide


Some areas around Thailand have experienced heavy rain over the past few days which has caused landslides and damage to buildings. The famous Mon Bridge in Sangkhlaburi partially collapsed last night and a riverside house in Ayutthaya also collapsed. Students and teachers at this school in Mae Sot, Tak had a lucky escape when a landslide crashed into one of their school buildings. It fortunately happened at the weekend when there wasn’t that many people around.


The five-classroom building had already been roped off and officials were salvaging some items from the building. After another heavy downpour more cracks started to appear and there was a loud cracking sound. Everyone quickly evacuated minutes before the building collapsed. The whole event was captured on the above video.
