Tremors in Delhi-NCR Areas After 4.0-Magnitude Earthquake Strikes

Tremors were felt in several parts of Delhi-NCR around 8am on Wednesday after a 4.0 magnitude earthquake struck between western Uttar Pradesh’s Shamli-Baghpat district.

An earthquake of 4.6-magnitude struck Tajikistan at around 7:05 am, according to United States Geological Survey.

Soon after, an earthquake was reported from Kandhla in Uttar Pradesh’s Shamli, 90 km from Delhi. The depth of the earthquake in Kandhla was 10 km.

Several residents in Delhi and adjoining cities took to Twitter after they felt tremors.

“Felt #earthquake (#भूकंप) M4.0 strikes 44 km SW of #Muzaffarnagar (#India) 33 min ago..,” tweeted EMSC, a provider of earthquake information.

Earlier this month, an earthquake in Afghanistan’s Hindu Kush region led to tremors thousands of miles away in Delhi and various parts of north India. Experts say tremors from earthquakes whose epicentre lies deep inside the earth usually are felt far away.
