It is Apo-eup, Gimcheon-si, Gyeongsangbuk-do.

Around 3:17 PM, an earthquake happened here.

It had a magnitude of 3.2 and the depth of the epicenter was 14 km.

Due to the earthquake, a magnitude 3 tremor was sent to North Gyeongsang Province and North Chungcheong Province.

At this level, a person in a room, especially in a tall building, can clearly feel the vibration.

In Daegu, Daejeon, and Gyeongsangnam-do, more than 50 km away, magnitude 2 shaking continued.

There was no major damage, but dozens of ‘reports of regret’ that felt the vibrations had been received by the fire department and the police.
