A powerful earthquake with a magnitude of 6.2 struck Nepal, causing significant tremors in northern parts of India, including Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh.
The tremors were unsettling for many people, leading them to quickly evacuate their homes and offices. The first tremor, measuring 4.6 in magnitude, struck at 2:25 p.m., followed by a more intense quake at 2:51 p.m.
People were frightened and rushed to find safety during the long-lasting tremors. The Delhi Police reassured residents, urging them not to panic and advising against using elevators.
They encouraged everyone to move to a secure area and provided emergency contact information.
Earlier, a Dutch researcher, Frank Hoogerbeets, had mentioned the possibility of a quake originating near Pakistan based on atmospheric fluctuations recorded on September 30.
While the predictions were uncertain, the event serves as a reminder of the unpredictable nature of natural disasters and the need for preparedness and caution. Our thoughts are with those affected by this distressing event.
