A 5.4-magnitude quake struck eastern South Korea on Wednesday (Nov 15), according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

Among 24 reactors in the nation, 18 are located along the southeastern coast, which is more exposed to tremors, as recent earthquakes in nearby Japan could have destabilized the fault lines on the Korean Peninsula. Ji-won, what's the latest on the quake and the aftershocks?

There were no immediate reports of any casualties or injuries.

Residents in Seoul, which is more than 300 kilometers away from the epicentre, felt tremors, and said their buildings shook.

The Pohang natural disaster is the second most powerful tremor to occur in South Korea following a magnitude five-point-eight quake that struck in Gyeongju, North Gyeongsang Province, on September 12th a year ago.

The nuclear power plant Singori 3 in Ulsan is believed to remain unaffected by the quake.

The 5.4-magnitude quake struck at 2:29 pm (0529 GMT) north of Pohang, the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA) said on it website.

South Korean officials are assessing the situation.

This is the second strongest quake to have ever been recorded in Korea, after a 5.8 magnitude natural disaster hit Gyeongju, south of Pohang, last year.
