75 killed in quake
A rising toll and damage across both sides of the Burma Thailand border.
More than 60 people have died in a magnitude-6.8 earthquake in Burma which struck near the Lao and Thai borders.
It happened at 1355 GMT on Thursday and was centred about 70 miles (110 km) from the northern Thai city of Chiang Rai, the US Geological Survey said.

It was felt 800km to the south in the Thai capital Bangkok, and in the Vietnamese capital, Hanoi.
The quake was shallow, at a depth of 6.2 miles (10km). There are fears the casualties could be much higher.

State radio in Burma said that 65 people had been killed and 111 injured in the quake.
It said that 244 houses, 14 Buddhist monasteries and nine government buildings were damaged.
The town of Tachileik and surrounding villages in Burma's Shan state appear to have borne the brunt of the earthquake.

Cracks are visible in roads and rice fields have been wrecked by rising silt and water, reports say.
15 houses collapsed in the town of Tarlay.
Roads, bridges, hospitals and other buildings have been at least partly damaged.

75 killed in Myanmar quake
At least 75 people were killed and hundreds left homeless on Friday after a strong earthquake hit Myanmar, with fears that the death toll could rise significantly.
Buildings were flattened close to the epicentre while terrified residents fled their homes as tremors were felt as far away as Bangkok, Hanoi and parts of China when the magnitude 6.8 quake hit late on Thursday.
Myanmar state television confirmed a toll of 74 dead and 111 injured.

Nearly 400 homes collapsed in four villages and towns close to the epicentre, the broadcaster said, with nine government offices also destroyed in badly-hit Tarlay town. Several monasteries were also smashed.
Across the border, Thai authorities said a 52-year-old woman was killed in Mae Sai district after a wall in her house collapsed. Sixteen people, including seven Myanmar and five Chinese nationals, were hurt in the quake.

In Yangon Chris Herink, Myanmar country director for the charity World Vision, said there were reports that the number of people killed had increased.
"The latest unconfirmed number is 140 so it is a worrying trend definitely," he said.

Explaining the high death toll in Myanmar, he said "it's the time of day combined with the severity of the quake and also obviously the construction standards of the homes".
Tarlay, where the hospital collapsed during the quake, was the worst affected township, according to teams in the area.
"As we go further into these areas we see collapsed houses, broken roads, destroyed monasteries and government buildings," he said.

World Vision helps care for around 7,000 children sponsored by overseas donors in the affected areas and the organisation is seeking out those youngsters as a priority.
The charity was able to distribute 1,500 litres of water and food for 1,350 people and Herink said the government had successfully activated its emergency response plans.
A Myanmar official told AFP earlier that "the military, police and local authorities are trying to find some people injured in those affected areas but the roads are still closed".

In Myanmar's fledgling parliament, formed after controversial elections in November last year, legislators put forward a proposal for official condolences to those killed in the quake.
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) issued a report on the situation on Friday.

It said the "risk of landslides remains high" in affected areas and said it had received reports of "sporadic disruption of basic facilities, including electricity, water supply, telecommunications".
Ben Phillips, of Save the Children in Bangkok, said the organisation was trying to assess the situation in Myanmar.

"This is harder as the area affected is more remote. Whilst remoteness may limit the earthquake's impact it also makes it harder to get all the information on impact quickly. It may take days," he said.

Burma’s Deadly Quake Leaves Thousands Homeless; Churches Destroyed
29 Mar 2011
 RANGOON, BURMA (Worthy News) - Christians were among thousands of families trying to rebuild their homes and churches in northeastern Burma Tuesday, March 29, following a 6.8 magnitude earth quake that killed at least scores of people, Christian missionaries said.

Most of the death and destruction occurred in the northeastern 'Golden Triangle' area where Burma, Laos and Thailand's borders meet each other, said Christian Aid Mission (CAM), a group closely working with native missionaries in the area.
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) said Tuesday, March 29, at least 74 people were killed and 120 injured in the earthquake, which struck Thursday, March 24, in Burma, also known as Myanmar, just north of the Thai border.


Burma's military government has been reluctant to publish exact death tolls in previous disasters and CAM cited officials as saying as many as 300 may have been killed in the quake, with aftershocks continuing over the weekend.

The quake was felt hundreds of miles away from the epicenter in Rangoon, also known as Yangon, as well as in Bangkok, Thailand, and the Vietnamese cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, missionaries said.
CAM said the earthquake hit an isolated, rural area where it has assisted indigenous missions among the Akha and Lahu people and other groups.

Worst-hit effected areas were the towns of Tachileik, Tarlay and Mong Lin, all in Shan state of Burma, witnesses said. Pictures showed flattened buildings and roads that were split in two when the ground shifted during the quake.


"Thousands of families are homeless and several churches were destroyed or severely damaged in hard to reach villages," said Stephen Van Valkenburg, CAM's overseas director for Southeast Asia.
His U.S-based organization set up an emergency relief fund to help victims.  "As in most such disasters medical help for the injured comes first, then long term efforts to rebuild homes, churches, Christian orphanages and schools as well as native missionary training centers," Valkenburg told BosNewsLife in a statement.

The earthquake was also expected to put additional pressure on predominantly Christian ethnic groups, who have reportedly faced a crackdown by Burma's ruling military, with thousands fleeing to neighboring Thailand.


Despite the reported difficulties, CAM said it has been assisting native missionary efforts in Burma since 1954.
Minority Christians face difficulties in Burma as it is ruled by a military junta which suppresses almost all dissent and wields absolute power, local Christians and several rights activists say.
The generals and the army face international sanctions over reported human rights abuses, including also the forcible relocation of civilians and the widespread use of forced labor, which includes children.

Death toll from Thailand's floods tops 600
21 Nov 2011
BANGKOK (AP) — The death toll from Thailand's worst flooding in more than half a century has passed 600.
The floods began in late July, fed by heavy monsoon rains and a series of tropical storms. The floodwaters swamped entire towns as they moved south through the country's central heartland to Bangkok and the Gulf of Thailand. More than two-thirds of the country's 77 provinces have been affected.

The government said Sunday that the death toll has reached 602, the majority from drowning. It said the number of affected provinces is currently 17.
The situation has improved dramatically in recent days and cleanup has begun in many areas, though some still face weeks more under water.

6.0 Earthquake Shakes Myanmar, Northern Thailand
May 5, 2014
A strong earthquake shook northern Thailand and Myanmar on Monday evening, smashing windows, cracking walls and roads and damaging Buddhist temples. The head of a Buddha statue fell at the Udomwaree Temple in Chiang Rai.  It was centered about 30 miles southeast of Thailand's border with Myanmar and about 60 miles west of Thailand's border with Laos.

6.3 magnitude earthquake strikes Thailand
A 6.3 magnitude earthquake has hit northern Thailand, close to the border with Myanmar, causing minor damages. The quake was centered nine kilometers (six miles) south of Mae Lao, Thailand, and 27 kilometers (17 miles) southwest of Chiang Rai, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said. The earthquake was felt in Chiang Mai and Bangkok, where people living on upper floors reported furniture shaking and curtains swaying. Severe shaking was also felt in Myanmar's largest city, Yangon.

Thanks for this information. It's scary nowadays because earthquakes have been all around places. Not only in Laos or Burma but most people also in the Philippines have been affected by this calamity. Let us be prepared and take extra necessary precautions for this.
