A 6.0 magnitude seismic strikes Myanmar: USGC
Rangoon: A powerful 6.0 magnitude seismic attack affected a isolated corner of the country early Friday (January 12), according to the US Geological Study. According to the USGS, the flat tremor affected Pyu about 40 kilometers due to the city. This was followed by three less severe shocks in the area, all with a strength of 5.3, the poll reports.
"There' s a low probability of losses and damage," USGS said, but noted that housing in the area is usually susceptible to earthquakes. This epicenter was situated in a thinly settled area between the northern Nay Pyi Taw, the capitol, and the southern Yangon trade center, at least 150 kilometers away.
Seismic activity is relatively frequent in Myanmar, where six major 7.0 or more tremors occurred between 1930 and 1956 near the Sagaing Fault, which, according to the USGS, ran from the North-South across the state. In 2016, a massive 6.8 GHz quake in the old city of Bagan in the heart of Myanmar destroyed three lives and the towers and bursting ramparts of the city.
Another strong 6.8 gauge quake in November 2012 shook the center of the nation, claiming 26 lives and wounding several hundred of them. Myanmar's rapid rate of growth, coupled with fragile infrastructures and bad land-use plans, has made even the country's most populated areas susceptible to seismic and other cataclysm.
