Thailand experienced two earthquakes during the night of March 24th. The first one was a 7-magnitude quake, while the second one occurred about 30 minutes later being a 5-magnitude. They occurred on the fault line on the Burmese-Lao border. Experts say these happened due to tectonic plate movement as a result of the Japanese earthquake [rvd: this expert is likely wrong]. People who were North and West of Thailand, and in Bangkok, experienced the effects of the quakes. It was about 6 miles deep, which is fairly shallow. People who were in high buildings especially felt shaking as an effect of the earthquakes. So far the only reported death is a 55-year old woman who’s roof collapsed on her while she was sleeping.
