    From the pictures I’ve seen, it seems these houses were the ones near Katsho school.
    When I was a little child (1991-92), this place used to be called “the upper market”; I don’t know if it’s still called that. Although I stayed near the erstwhile Haa Junior High School, I would walk all the way across town to go there and buy stuff we would otherwise not get in any other shop in Haa town.
    They were a line of imposing buildings and I remember they had a 3-tier window system in all. It’s like a landmark of Haa has been wiped off. It saddens me to think I won’t see them if I go to Haa next time.

    Kudos to all who helped the families come to terms with this unfortunate incident.
