An earthquake, which has left five people dead, was a "strong tremor" according to an eyewitness in Mandalay.
Several extensive aftershocks hit the region, while residents in Bangkok, the capital of neighbouring Thailand, also felt the quake.
I've never felt such a strong tremor. I also heard some loud noises and the light went out. No idea about the damage.
