October 24, 2012VIETNAM - A series of tremors measuring 4.6 on
the Richter scale broke out in the district at 9:42 pm Monday and
lasted for about three seconds, said Le Van Tuan, chief of the district
People’s Committee’s Secretariat. Thousands of locals rushed out of
their houses in panic after they heard loud blasts and felt the ground
shaking, houses’ walls cracking, and things inside the houses falling,
Tuan said. “Many items on a table in my house fell down to the floor and
my children cried and screamed when hearing explosions that sounded
like the sounds of bombings,” he said. This quake could be felt by
people living in districts nearby such as Nam Tra My, Tien Phuoc, Phuoc
Son and Nong Son, he added. Vu Duc Toan, deputy head of the Hydropower
Management Board No. 3, said that the earthquake accelerator installed
at the hydropower plant area indicated a ground acceleration of 98
cm/s2. This data has been reported to the Global Physics Institute. The
quake’s statistics are being handled by the Institute and the Earthquake
Information and Tsunami Warning Center, Toan said. Last night Dr.
Nguyen Hong Phuong, deputy director of the center, confirmed that the
quake was 4.6 degrees and its epicenter was 7 km below ground. This is
the strongest quake to hit the area since 1957, the center said. The
second strongest quake in the area so far occurred on September 3,
measuring 4.2 on the Richter scale. As previously reported, the first
earthquake observation station in the district was put into operation on
October 19. More than 20 quakes have occurred in the region in the past
several months. This is the first among five planned stations to be
built in the district to monitor such quakes, which experts say have
been induced by the plant’s reservoir, authorities said. The station
will record all seismic developments of any reservoir-induced
earthquakes, irrespective of how minor they are, in the area, said Dr.
Nguyen Xuan Anh, head of the Global Physics Institute. -Tuoitrenews
