Haenam(해남) experiences 54 earthquakes after 42 years of silence

 

 

The Korea Meteorological Administration or the KMA said on May 4th that it was looking into a recent and abrupt rise in earthquakes in the Haenam(해남) region.

 

 

Haenam(해남) County, located in the nation's southwestern direction had suffered no quakes for more than four decades. However, there was a series of sudden seismic activities in recent days in the region.

 

On Apr. 26th, Haenam(해남) was first hit by a 1.8 magnitude earthquake. Since then, it has been struck by repeated aftershocks.

 

A total of 54 earthquakes have been detected in the county according to the national agency.

 

The KMA held a response meeting early morning on May 4th and decided to set up 4 makeshift observation centers near the epicenter. This is 21km northwest of Haenam(해남) to investigate what has been causing the temblors with a magnitude of between 2.1 and 3.1.

 

The temporary centers are fitted with functions to monitor the seismic waves, collect data, and send out alerts.
