Earthquake of magnitude 3.2 strikes Delhi-NCR
Delhi’s neighbouring Noida was hit by a low-intensity earthquake on Wednesday night. The tremors were felt across Delhi, Faridabad and Gurugram.
The earthquake measuring 3.2 on the Richter scale hit the area at 10:42 pm on Wednesday. According to the National Center for Seismology (NCS), the epicentre of the earthquake was 19 kilometre South-East of Noida, which is a part of the national capital region.
The depth of the earthquake was 3.8 kilometres, the NCS data said.
There were no immediate reports of loss of life or property in the region.
The quake comes merely four days after two back-to-back earthquakes hit another city in Delhi’s neighbourhood. Haryana’s Rohtak was hit by the first quake, a medium intensity one of 4.5 magnitude, at 9.08 pm on May 29 at a depth of 5 km.
The second quake was of lower intensity of magnitude 2.9 and occurred at the same location at 10 pm on the same day, the NCS said. Rohtak is nearly 60 km from Delhi.
The areas around Delhi are known for reporting low-intensity earthquakes.
Since April 12, Delhi alone has reported four low-intensity quakes — April 12 (3.5), April 13 (2.7), May 10 (3.4) and May 15 (2.2).
