A 4.1-magnitude earthquake was reported at a depth of 6 kilometres on Friday night (October 18) in the Doi Saket district of Chiang Mai province in Northern Thailand.

 

The Earthquake Observation Division of the Thai Meteorological Department said the quake occurred at 9.46pm and its epicenter was 15 kilometres east of downtown Chiang Mai.

 

The division reported that the quake was felt by locals for a short time and that residents of the adjacent districts of Sankampaeng, Sansai, Saraphee also felt the earth shake.

 

After the quake, Chiang Mai governor Charoenrit Sanguansat ordered officials to check for damage in high-rise buildings such as Maharat Nakhon Chiang Mai hospital, and later reported that the situation had returned to normal. The checks ascertained that there was no need to evacuate patients from the hospital.

 

There have been no reports of damaged buildings, roads, dams or casualties.

I live near the airport and I definitely felt it. It's been a short and strong shake, at exactly the time they are reporting. It looked more like an air displacement caused by some kind of explosion.

Yes I felt it,jolt the sofa,but only for a couple seconds,

The worst one was a few years ago,it sounded like a

747 was trying to land on the roof,at the time I never

knew earthquakes made a sound,the water was sloshing

around in the Koi pool.

A Christian golf course? Do they pray for birdies and eagles? Sorry, couldn't resist.

Didn't feel a thing at Nong Hoi.

Thailand’s northern provinces of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai may face a magnitude 5 earthquake, as measured on the Richter Scale (ML), in the next 10 years after a 4.1 ML tremor shook seven districts of the two provinces on Friday night, according to the Department of Mineral Resources.

 

The forecast is based on analysis of movements in the Mae Tha fault lines, including the 5.1 ML quake on December 13th 2006, the epicentre of which was under the Mae Rim district of Chiang Mai.

 

Geological studies of earth strata at Ban Pong Samakkhi, in Doi Saket district of Chiang Mai, indicate that the area experienced a 5.9 ML quake about 2,000 years ago.
