Small quake shakes Chiang Rai

An earthquake registering 3.6 magnitude on the Richter scale hit Chiang Rai’s Mae Lao district shortly before 3pm Monday, causing no damage, the Seismology Office of the Meteorological Department said.

The epicentre of the quake was 2k miles underground in Mae Lao district and could be felt throughout the province.

Sawang Momdee, Chiang Rai's chief of disaster prevention and mitigation, said he had ordered nearby districts to examine whether the temblor had caused any damage and report to his office so that action could be taken immediately to help affected people.
