Tower Blocks Shake In Bangkok After Earthquake

Footage shows rooms and officers in high rise tower blocks in Bangkok shaking this morning after an earthquake hit the border with the neighbouring country of Laos.

The 6.1 magnitude quake struck between Nan province in northeastern Thailand and Sainyabuli in Laos at 6:50am local time.

High rise towers in Bangkok were felt shaking for around 30 seconds.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake hit at a depth of 10 km (6 miles). Bangkok is around 600 km (400 miles) from the epicentre of the earthquake but the effects were still felt.

Dozens of buildings were damaged in rural Laos, but there were no reports of injuries.
