At least 75 are dead in the Burma quakes

Studies showed there is a high possibility that a powerful earthquake of 6-7 magnitude will occur along the fault lines in Kanchanaburi and Chiang Mai provinces, Pennung Warnitchai, a seismologist from the Asian Institute of Technology, said yesterday.

His comment followed the 6.8-magnitude earthquake in northern Burma that killed at least 75 people, including a Thai villager in Chiang Rai, on Thursday.

The quake sent shock waves that could be felt in several parts of Thailand, including Bangkok.

Quakes in Kanchanaburi or Chiang Mai would not only cause severe damage to the two provinces but also to Bangkok, it is believed by some.
