Another earthquake hits Nepal; strong tremors felt in NCR

New Delhi: In a startling incident, strong earthquake tremors were felt across the National Capital Region (NCR), including Delhi, Noida, and Gurgaon, leaving residents in a state of shock. This seismic event, which occurred today, evoked memories of past earthquakes and sparked concerns about the region’s preparedness for such natural disasters.

Authorities are on high alert following the seismic activity

According to the National Center for Seismology, earthquake measuring 5.6 on the Richter scale struck Nepal at 4.16 pm today. This is the second earthquake in four days after a strong earthquake on Friday rattled nine districts, killing over 150 people and damaging infrastructure.

Authorities are on high alert following the seismic activity, as Delhi falls within a seismic zone with a history of moderate to strong earthquakes. Earthquake preparedness measures and awareness campaigns have been in place for years, emphasizing the need for residents to be ready for such events.

While no immediate damage has been reported in the region, the authorities are conducting thorough inspections to ensure the safety of structures, especially tall buildings and infrastructure.

The earthquake comes just days after a tragic incident in Nepal, where a devastating quake resulted in the loss of 170 lives. This has brought the importance of earthquake preparedness and response measures back into the spotlight.
