MALAYSIA: RANAU QUAKE SENDS SABAHANS IN SHOCK

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia The moderate earthquake measuring 5.2 on the Richter scale that hit Ranau about 9.06 pm yesterayy was also felt in other parts of Sabah.

Among the areas were Kota Kinabalu, Kundasang, Penampang, Tuaran, Kudat and Kota Marudu.

A 51-year-old Kundasang resident, Marliana Rahmad, said she and her husband had just returned from a Yasin recital at a madrasah in Kampung Dumpiring when the incident took place.

We were surprised (this time around) although being used to earthquakes here. However, the tremors were very strong compared to the usual ones, she said when contacted by Bernama here last night.

Marliana said both of them were grateful for having survived the six-second quake.

At that time, the lights and household items were swaying but luckily, nothing broke, she said, adding that the situation was now back to normal and there had been no ongoing tremors in Kundasang.
