Unusual M5.4 earthquake strikes South Korea: Heavy damage, several injured, no radiocative mess in pictures and video
An unusual 5.4-magnitude earthquake struck Pohang at 5:29 p.m. UTC on November 15, 2017, causing at least 7 injuries and heavy damage. The strongest quake was preceded by a series of minor quakes and followed by others including a 4.6-magnitude quake, that shook many parts of the country, including Seoul nearly 300 kilometers away. Concrete debris, iron beams, brick walls, electricity poles and glass fell onto streets, destroying parked vehicles. Handong Global University students have been evacuated after walls of one of the campus buildings crumbled. Luckily, the quakes didn’t affect nuclear reactors that are concentrated in the nation’s southeastern region, with six nuclear reactors in Gyeongju, about 35 kilometers south of the epicenter.

In the Northeast, the current polar vortex – record cold temperature beaten in Boston – and thus frost quakes may be responsible for the loud noises. Other sources will be army trainings. But what about Idaho, Alabama, Texas, Louisiana, Texas, South Carolina and Florida? Read below to debunk the mystery:
