This is the terrifying moment a tropical storm battered a woman’s home and a tree fell on her car as she looked on in despair.
Kamolchaya Prasertsin sheltered inside the property while it was hit with driving wind and rain in Chachoengsao, central Thailand, on May 4.
A tree was uprooted which fell onto her car while the roof of the building shook violently.
Kamolchaya shouted: ‘Oh my god, oh my god. My car, it’s my car, my car is damaged.’
Several other homes in the province were also damaged and the roads were blocked with fallen trees. Local government officials surveyed the destruction to provide aid to the affected families.
Thailand and other countries in Southeast Asia such as Malaysia and Indonesia are approaching their tropical monsoon rainy season. Soaring temperatures reaching 35 degrees Celsius are often followed by powerful tropical storms with thunder, lightning, rain and flash floods.
