The Observatory apologizes for an incorrect description in an earthquake press release issued on 19 November
(20 November 2010)


The Hong Kong Observatory recorded a magnitude 2.8 earthquake on the Richter scale at 2:42 p.m. on Friday 19 November 2010.  A typographical error was made in the earthquake press release issued at 3:16 p.m. that day describing it as an "intense earthquake".  It was subsequently corrected to "minor earthquake" in the press releases issued at 3:59 p.m. and 5:52 p.m.  The Observatory apologizes for any inconvenience caused by the above error.
