Are there Earthquakes or Cyclones in Myanmar?

The Sagaing Fault runs down the middle of Myanmar, which has caused many earthquakes over the years. In 2016, a magnitude 6.8 magnitude earthquake killed one person and damaged ancient temples in Bagan. These earthquakes are unpredictable, and the government is still in the process of determining how best to protect their citizens and historic sites.

Cyclone season hits Myanmar twice per year: from mid-April to mid-May, and then again from October to November.
