The Vietnam Earthquake and Tsunami Warning Center under the Institute of Geophysics said on Sunday that four consecutive earthquakes measuring 2.7 to 3.1 on the Richter scale hit Kon Plong District in the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum from Friday to Sunday.
The two latest tremors, with magnitudes of 3.1 and 2.7, occurred at a depth of 8km at 8:29 am and 0:20 on Sunday, respectively.
The other two quakes of magnitude-3 struck the district at a depth of 8.8km and 8.2km at 9:10 am on Saturday and 10:44 pm on Friday, respectively.
The earthquakes did not pose any disaster risk, however.
