On November 15, a magnitude 5.4 quake struck the city of Pohang, a southeastern coastal region of South Korea.

While the US Geological Survey says it was centered off the coast about 9.3 kilometers northwest of Pohang, state-run Korea Meteorological Administration said the epicenter was inside Pohang.

South Korea has relatively little seismic activity, compared with Japan to the east.

Residents in the capital, more than 300 kilometres (186 miles) away, felt tremors and said their buildings shook. It was the second-biggest quake that hit South Korea in recent history. There have been no reports of any damage to them yet.

The most powerful quake recorded in the south was a 5.8-magnitude tremor that hit the southeastern city of Gyeongju in September a year ago.
