CHIANG RAI – An earthquake measuring 4.6 on the Richter scale jolted Chiang Rai province yesterday afternoon, prompting local officials to be on alert for more seismic activities in the region.

According to an announcement by the Seismological Bureau of the Thai Meteorological Department, the epicenter of the quake was located 9 kilometers deep in Mae Lao district.
