    Chiang Mai - An earthquake measured at 3.9 on the Richter scale rocked Chiang Mai early Tuesday.

    Pongsaporn Panatkorn, an meteorologist of the Northern Meteorologist Office, said the quake with epic centre in Mae Rim district about 12 kilometres from Muang district struck at 2:31 am.

    The quake was mild so it did not cause any damage.

    Well seems more like an earth tremor, than an earthquake.

    Earthquakes have always scared me because they seem too unpredictable.... all we ever hear is that they are inevitable and we just wait for 'the big one'. They are getting better at detection ...detecting even the subtle vibrations. We recently had a series of earthquakes out in the ocean off the coast of Oregon a few weeks ago and it turns out they are using the same technology that scientists use to detect the sounds of humpbacked whales to hear vibrations on the ocean floor.
