DMR Confirms No Earthquake In Eastern ThailandDMR have insisted that an earthquake will never happen in the eastern parts of Thailand so people don’t need to worry.
[PattayaDailyNews]; Mr.Somboon Kositanon-director of department of mineral resources- said that there is no need for people to worry about an earthquake happening here because they haven’t found and traces of sliding and energy sources that could cause an earthquake.
Also the department have studied the sliding in Nakorn Nayok province and they intended to estimate its potential if they have enough budget to support them and will also do the same in Ayuthaya, Saraburi, Nakorn Nayok and Srakaew.
Mr.Somboon said that to study the sliding in Nakorn Nayok, the officers have to sample the sediment to age it. If it’s not over 10,000 years old it means its powerless and can’t cause an earthquake.
However, the sliding’s in Vietnam and Shenzhen were powerful and aren’t expected to cause an earthquake in Thailand.
