An earthquake with a magnitude of 4 point 2 has occurred in China.
Beihai, a city with over 289,600 residents about 50 km north of the epicenter, felt the tremors. Reports indicate significant shaking, with chandeliers swaying and fish tanks trembling in indoor sheds. The quake prompted people to seek safety outdoors.
This event is part of a series of recent earthquakes across China. Notably, on December 18, a powerful magnitude 6.2 earthquake struck Jishishan County, Linxia Prefecture, Gansu Province, followed by over 200 aftershocks within 6 hours, resulting in thousands of casualties.
The earthquake underscored the vulnerability of poorly constructed houses in the epicenter, contributing to the high number of casualties.
