3.9 Earthquake Strikes Nan Province


Nan, Thailand – The province of Nan was struck by a 3.9 earthquake on Saturday afternoon. No damage or injuries, the Seismological Bureau reported.

The earthquake took place at 2:57pm Saturday with the district of Na Noi as its epicenter, but the villages of Huay Kaew and Santisuk in tambon Nam Pua of Wiang Sa district also felt the ground shaking.

Bangkok Post reported that Tinnakorn Thathong, director of the Mineral Resources Department Zone 1 office in Lampang, said the epicenter was in the deep jungle of Lamnam Nan National Park, where there were no human settlements.

The movement along the Uttaradit fault line, which passes through Nan and Uttaradit provinces, caused the ground to shake.

Mr Tinnakorn said that the Uttradit fault line, about 150 kilometres long, passes through Na Noi, Wiang Sa and Mae Charim districts of Nan province and Muang and Tha Pla districts of Uttaradit, the report added.
