Things You Should Know About The 5.2-Magnitude Earthquake That Rocked Sabah”

There were no reports of any casualties or damage in the 9.06pm incident, said former Mount Kinabalu Mountain Guides Association president Richard Soibi.

Several districts in Sabah were rocked by an natural disaster last night measuring 5.2 on the Richter scale.

All 239 people on Mount Kinabalu - including 130 climbers - have been safely evacuated following the 5.02 magnitude quake that hit the Ranau district on Thursday (March 8).

Meanwhile, Universiti Malaysia Sabah geologist Professor Felix Tongul has cautioned residents to brace themselves for more aftershocks from the quake.

An aftershock with a magnitude of 2.1 was recorded at 9.27pm on Thursday, but was not felt by most people.

"There could be aftershocks after last night's quake but we hope it will not be a long series of earthquakes", Tongkul added.

A 2.8-magnitude aftershock was reported to have followed at nearly the same coordinates 21 minutes later, also at a depth of 5km.

This latest natural disaster is reportedly the strongest after the 2015 quake which lasted about 30 seconds, stranding hundreds of mountain climbers from 16 countries on Mount Kinabalu. This includes climbers, guides, porters, park rangers, contractors, Mountain Search and Rescue members, and staff from the mountain's two lodges.

Meanwhile, Sabah Parks has sent a team to assess the damage on Mount Kinabalu.

Among the areas found affected by tremors were Kota Kinabalu, Kundasang, Penampang, Tuaran, Kudat and Kota Marudu.
