Delhi, NCR Quake: Earthquake Tremors Reported Across City, No Damage Felt

by Ravi Sharma

The Indian Express reported a Delhi-NCR earthquake that shook homes. No damage has been felt, but tremors have been reported across the city.

Reports of tremors in Delhi

In the early hours of Saturday evening, Delhi was jolted awake by a mild earthquake. The National Capital Region also felt the tremors, with reports coming in from across the city. There was no damage reported and people quickly went back to their beds after the initial scare.

This is not the first time that Delhi has experienced an earthquake. In fact, the region is quite prone to them. In September last year, a moderate-intensity earthquake hit Uttarakhand, causing tremors in Delhi as well. On October 2005, an earthquake measuring 7.6 on the Richter scale hit northern Pakistan, resulting in widespread damage and hundreds of casualties. The tremors were also felt in Delhi and other parts of north India.

With such a history, it is no wonder that Delhi is quick to react to any report of an earthquake. But as we have seen time and again, there is no need to panic as these tremors are usually harmless and do not cause any damage.

No damage reported

There were no reports of any damage caused by the tremors in India. But In the Doti district of Nepal which was the epicenter, a house collapse claimed the lives of at least six individuals. The Tremors magnitude of 6.6 struck Nepal

Locations of the tremors

The tremors were felt in different parts of Delhi and NCR including Hauz Khas, Dwarka, Noida, Ghaziabad, and Faridabad. There were no reports of any damage or casualty.

The tremors were felt across Delhi and the NCR region including Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad, and Ghaziabad. On Saturday, Nepal was struck by an earthquake with a value of 5.4 on the Richter scale.

In the past week, there have been two earthquake incidents. A 5.4-magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on Wednesday caused tremors to be felt in regions of north India, including Delhi, Ghaziabad, Gurugram, and Lucknow. In the Doti district of Nepal, a house collapse claimed the lives of at least six individuals.
