Up to 1 000 homes have been damaged as severe storm accompanied by heavy rain and strong winds hit Thailands' Chiang Mai Province over the Easter weekend.
Thai PBS said 10 districts were blacked out for several hours when the freak summer storm hit the region on April 20, ripping off roofs of homes and downing power poles.
The worst-hit district was Hang Don where many houses and about a dozen cars suffered extensive wind damage.
Wind gusts up to 112 km/h (70 mph) were registered across the province.
The region was left without drinking water and power until late evening.
Free food was provided to the victims on the request of His Majesty the King.
