5.5 magnitude earthquake hits off S. Korea's southeastern coast – state media
So far, there have been no reports of fatal casualties with 7 minor injury cases as of 4:32 PM KST, but it seems the quake did take a toll on building exteriors, vehicles, and in some cases, indoors.
The Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA) said a magnitude five-point-four quake hit nine kilometers north of Pohang's northern district in North Gyeongsang Province at around 2:29 p.m. on Wednesday.
The Korea Meteorological Administration says there were smaller tremors of magnitudes of 2.2 and 2.6 just a few minutes before the main natural disaster.
South Korean media showed crumbled walls piled on parked cars, broken windows from some buildings and elementary school students taking shelter on a playground. The quake was felt across the nation, including Seoul about 370 km away from the port city. The Korea Meteorological Administration said that no injuries or major damages were immediately reported.
South Korea has relatively little seismic activity, compared with Japan to the east. Most of South Korea's atomic power plants are located along the southeast coastal area. A third aftershock with a 3.6 magnitude was recorded later, the weather agency said.
South Korea's top steel maker POSCO, based in Pohang, said it experienced no damage from the natural disaster so far.
