BUSAN, South Korea -- A small earthquake registering 3.5 on the Richter scale hit eleven kilometers north-northeast of Gyeongnam Geochang at 9:25 p.m. last night.

Tremors were felt in parts in Busan, though no damage or injuries were reported. The quake, the strongest thus far, was the fifth to hit the peninsula so far this year. South Korea is considered relatively safe from major earthquakes.

Residents near Dae-dong-ri, Geon-chang-up reported shaking, thinking either a gas explosion a possible nuclear test from the North.

There are also no tsunami warnings as yet from the powerful quake that hit the Solomon Islands this morning.
