Magnitude 6.8 Quake Strikes MYANMAR

Posted by feww on March 24, 2011

Quake May Have Caused Heavy Damage

The epicenter was located in a mountainous region of Myanmar near the borders with Thailand and Laos.

Tremors were felt in Bangkok and Hanoi.

Buildings swayed in Bangkok, about 770 kilometers south of the epicenter, AP reported.

No reports of damage as of posting; however, heavy damage could have occurred near the epicenter because buildings in the rural region are believed to be vulnerable to strong shocks.

A5.8 quake, which struck Yingjiang County in southwest China’s Yunnan Province (MYANMAR-CHINA BORDER REGION), killed at least 24 people and injured more than 200 others two weeks ago, a report said. The shock also destroyed about 1,000 buildings.
