Nine deaths believed to stem from hypothermia reported in Bueng Kan, Nakhon Phanom, Tak, Rayong and Udon Thani provinces.

  1. According to my maps Thailand is located at 15-20 degrees north and far from the Himalayas. Isn’t that supposed to be tropical jungle area?

    Maybe I was wrong, but I thought the tropics would be ok during an iceage? Maybe not.

  3. I once had a bet with my thai girlfriend that one day soon thailand will be in the deep freeze!, she laughed of course, that was in 2012… pay up Noom!!…
