Rare strong winds topple tree at Doi Suthep temple, inflicting panic amongst guests

Stunning , recognized locally as “Lom Luang“, shocked vacationers and monks when it struck Doi Suthep Temple in Chiang Mai, resulting in a large tree collapsing throughout the Naga staircase. The incident occurred at 4pm today, when the forceful winds swept by way of the summit, inflicting a big purple tree, sufficiently big for 3 individuals to hug, to fall, blocking the center of the staircase leading up to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep Ratchaworawihan. Fortunately, no vacationers have been passing by, and solely a spotlight suffered damage. The unexpected severe windstorm left monks and tourists startled, as such occasions are rare on the summit of Doi Suthep.
Once the wind calmed down, temple officials and locals collaboratively took about an hour to take away the fallen tree trunk and branches from the area, using chainsaws to accomplish the duty. The staircase was subsequently reopened, allowing guests and locals to ascend and descend as usual..
