Earthquake rattles Phuket

PHUKET: An earthquake measuring 3.8 in magnitude rattled the east coast of Phuket before dawn this morning.

The Thai Meteorological Department reported the quake as striking at 5:32am, with its epicenter halfway between Phuket and Koh Yao Yai island in Phang Nga Bay (click here).

The epicenter of the quake was centered in the same area where a 4.0 quake shook on February 20 (story here).

The February 20 quake failed to instigate a tsunami warning, and the Phuket Gazette has yet to receive any reports of damage from the quake that shook the coast this morning.
