1st Anniversary of the 2014 Mae Lao Earthquake

Professor Pennung Warnitchai together with Deputy Chief of Thai Meteorology Department, Mr Burin Wechbunthung, visited some places in Chiang Rai which suffered heavy damage from the M6.3 earthquake that occurred on 5 May 2014. They were there to check on the reconstruction efforts made in preparation for the next earthquake disaster.

During this visit, Professor Pennung Warnitchai remarked that Thailand is not prepared for another massive earthquake, citing mainly the law regulating the construction of earthquake-resistant buildings which does not cover all types of structures (especially the small private houses) and the lack of expertise in constructing earthquake-resistant buildings among Thai engineers.
