On top of that, the shaking was also felt in Hanoi, Vietnam too as buildings were reportedly swaying. A Hanoi resident, Tran Hoa Phuong said: “The ceiling lights were shaking quite strongly. I felt dizzy and scared.”

Tran felt the earthquake from the Thai-Laos border in her apartment building. This earthquake came three hours after another 5.7-magnitude earthquake in the same region of Laos. Close by the site of the Xayaburi dam project.
