Earthquake Hits North India & Nepal

After a powerful earthquake struck Nepal late Friday evening, strong tremors could be felt in Delhi and other nearby cities. The National Center for Seismology reported that the quake was 6.4 and occurred at a 10 km depth in Nepal.

The agency announced the earthquake on X (formerly Twitter).

Many people in Delhi and other parts of the capital region fled their homes. They posted videos on social media of chandeliers and fans swinging, demonstrating the earthquake’s power.

There were also tremors in Bihar, Uttarakhand, and parts of Uttar Pradesh.

It is the third strong earthquake in Nepal within a month. Nepal is in a tectonic zone that is one of the most active on earth, making it very vulnerable to earthquakes.

After four earthquakes struck Nepal in an hour, strong tremors could be felt on October 3. Within 25 minutes, earthquakes with magnitudes of 4.6, 6.2, and 3.8 were all felt. A third, of magnitude 3.8, was felt 15 minutes later, and the fourth, of magnitude 3.1, 13 minutes after that.

A 6.4 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal Friday night. Strong tremors were felt throughout northern India, including Delhi-NCR, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. According to the National Centre for Seismology, the earthquake occurred at 11:32 pm at a 10 km depth.

According to officials from the National Earthquake Measurement Centre, the epicenter was in the Lamidanda district of Nepal’s Jajarkot. The earthquake on Friday is the latest that has been felt in Delhi-NCR.

On October 22, an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.1 hit Nepal. The quake’s epicenter was in Dhading, and the tremors were felt throughout the Delhi-NCR area. On October 15, vibrations from a 3.1-magnitude earthquake that struck Haryana could be felt in Delhi and the NCR.

On October 3, after a sequence of earthquakes that shook Nepal within a few hours, strong tremors were felt in Delhi and the surrounding areas. The strongest earthquake measured 6.2 on a Richter scale.

Ajay, a seismologist who worked previously at the Wadia Institute of Himalayan Geology in Nepal, said that the epicenter of Friday’s earthquake occurred close to the location of the October 3, 2015 quakes. He identified the area as the central belt in Nepal, where “active energy-releasing sectors” are located.

He also said that the public should be alert to earthquakes and prepared if they occur.
