Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if it was an earthquake or an explosion that rocked Chang Kian area of Chang Mai at 4.35pm this afternoon (Sunday)?

Whatever it was, my dog and I sure felt it in Nong Hoi district.

I heard a rumbling sound about that time like a large lorry going by but don't have any roads with that kind of vehicle near me. I'm near Hang Dong.

Hmm.

Must have been an earthquake then. Quite a bang preceeded the movement.

Felt another smaller one at about 4.55pm too.

We felt it here in Hang Dong. It sure felt - and sounded - more like an explosion than a quake. I'm from California so I've felt a few quakes.

Felt what appeared to be a strong tremor around quarter to 4, follwed by a very mild "aftershock" 8 minutes later

Anyone else feel it?

What's the link to that earthquake watch site?

It didn't feel as if it was within Thailand (based on previous tremors I've felt here, but might have been in the Shan states.

It was a sharp short jolt here. Didn't feel like a California style quake to me.

The USGS has a site : Recent earthquakes

but it hasn't been updated for this afternoon yet, I think, only lists two in AK

Looks like the quake you felt was not strong enough (≥ 4) to make it onto the list.

Anything on the local news yet?

On September 16th, there was an eartquake in Tokyo that lasted for 7 minutes.

Trapped in a high rise building, balancing to stay upright we watched other skyscrapers swaying.

One minute through the quake, some people went to a website that already had the epicenter location and strenght.

Thais should update their technology and procedures.

It's not a Thai site.

They felt it upstairs at our house but I was on ground level and didn't feel anything, that's pretty much the same with every earthquake.

No "bang" here in central Chiang Mai.
