Following a 2. 4-magnitude disaster on Thursday, a 2. 2 Richter-scale disaster was reported on Koh Samui in Surat Thani territory on Saturday.

At 8:30 am, the Meteorological Department’s Earthquake Observation Division recorded the quake. Its centre was in tambon Bo Put, at a level of two miles.

No injuries or damage were reported in private areas as a result of surveillance footage. &nbsp,

Koh Samui was struck by an earlier disaster on Thursday night. The Department of Mineral Resources claimed that the earthquake was caused by the use of geothermal power.

Officials on the southern resort area have urged residents to stay calm and pursue reports from government agencies. If another quake occurs, people should relocate to wide-open areas or seek shelter underneath tough structures.

The most recent earthquake felt “like a big truck driving by,” according to one online user.

Since 2008, there have been 16 tremors in Surat Thani. The Khlong Marui Fault Zone ( KMFZ), a significant active strike-slipped fault system in southern Thailand, was the site of the majority of the events.
