Director- public Pichit Sombatmak said people felt the two numbness, which registered magnitudes of 2.2- 2.4 on the Richter level, but there were no reports of any harm.

The two earthquakes, according to Weerachart Wiwekawin, director of lively faults and earthquakes, were most likely caused by movements in Koh Samui’s cracked granite foundation. He was convinced that Koh Samui was secure and that there would not be a powerful quake.

A 2.4- scale vibration occurred four miles full in tambon Ang Thong of Koh Samui at 8.24am on Thursday and a 2.2- scale collapse, two kilometres strong, in tambon Bo Phut at 8.31am on Saturday.

Both shakes were described by the office as microearthquakes that occurred way away from any active mistake line. On Surat Thani’s peninsula, they were approximately 80 kilometers from the Khlong Marui Fault.

The office attributed the holes in the granite base of Koh Samui to geothermal power.
