The tiny earthquake that struck the town of Goesan on Saturday, according to South Korea’s weather agency, was nonetheless the strongest of the 38 tremors that have been recorded there this year and was capable of toppling buildings or shattering windows.
Emergency personnel from the centre North Chungcheong province and its environs received more than 50 calls from locals reporting feeling the ground shake, according to Lee Jae-yeong, an official from the Safety Ministry’s disaster headquarters.
According to Lee, there have been no reports of concrete damage to date.
Although there were no immediate reports of issues, the office of South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol said he gave officials the order to assess the security of the country’s telecommunications and energy networks.
