Location of Singu Plateau volcano and the earthquakes on 11 Nov 2012A shallow (about 10 km depth) magnitude 6.6 earthquake hit north of the Singu Plateau on 11 Nov. Two aftershocks of magnitude 5.0 occurred near the fissure vents 2 hours later.
It is unlikely that the quake has any relation with the volcanic system, which as one of the few on the mainland of SE Asia might be considered still potentially active. The last eruption from Singu volcano probably occurred less than 10,000 years ago.
