Unlike previous aftershocks that followed the first earthquake on June 5, where the tremors were felt within Ranau and Kota Belud, the latest one could be felt in many districts.

According to the department the tremors were felt in the two districts as well as Kinabatangan, Tuaran, Kota Marudu, Beluran, Kudat and Keningau.

At the state capital here too, many people who felt it were sent rushing out of their homes.

Mysterious hands appear in Mount Kinabalu photo

Persatuan Komuniti Bugis Sabah (PKBS) vice-president Samasuddin Yusop, who is part of a group of donors pictured with the mysterious limbs, said neither images, taken at the base of Mount Kinabalu, were altered.

“Many people asked us about the photographs but even we have difficulty determining if was a makhluk (mysterious creature) or a problem with the cameras,” the former Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) corporate communications head told The Star Online when contacted.

The images…were taken using…a mobile phone and a Nikon camera.

Both photos captured the image of the additional limbs.

Striking blue ‘rainbow’ seen in skies over Mt Kinabalu

KOTA KINABALU: The blue rays seen in the skies over Mount Kinabalu are believed to be a phenomenon usually associated with areas hit by earthquakes.

Geologists describe it as a “blue brush stroke light”.

They say the generation of lights involved ionization of oxygen in some types of rocks due to high stress before, during and after earthquake and other seismic activities.

Mountain guide Ridwan earned awe and praise for carrying an injured climber to safety.

Dismissing scorn over quake link, Sabah leaders says stripping tourists broke the law


zsPairin (centre) said he had a premonition that something bad was going to happen earlier this week when he saw a flight of swallows circling outside his house during breakfast.

KOTA KINABALU, June 12 — Sabah leaders have come out in defence of the state’s customs and ancestral beliefs now being derided globally after a senior government leader blamed last week’s deadly earthquake on tourists who stripped naked on Mount Kinabalu.

Despite the mockery and scorn, state Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun who was among those targeted explained that the demands for the group to be punished was rooted in deeply-held reverence for the mountain considered sacred to the natives.

“We are not apologetic of our rich cultural heritage. They define who we are and we should be proud of them. They (foreigners) don’t understand our customs and traditions. They make their own conclusions based on their own values, not based on ours.

“Other countries, too, have native laws and taboos and if they can respect those in other countries, there is no reason why it should be an exception in Sabah,” he said.
