Second, lighter earthquake rattles Phuket

PHUKET: A second earthquake, measuring 3.2 in magnitude, shook Phuket just after noon today.

The Thai Meteorological Department reported the quake as striking at 12:25pm, with its epicenter halfway between Phuket and Koh Yao Yai in Phang Nga Bay. It struck close to the epicenter of the 4.6 magnitude earthquake that occurred before dawn today (story here).

The most recent quake was about 1 kilometer below the earth’s surface.

The Phuket Gazette has yet to receive any reports of damage from either of the earthquakes. No tsunami warning has been issued.
