Earthquake in Delhi: Scare as citizens experience tremors

An earthquake was felt in Delhi and adjoining areas of the national capital on late Wednesday night.

As earth shook, residents came out of their homes. The tremors were felt in Delhi, NOIDA, Ghaziabad, Faridabad and parts of surrounding regions including UP and Haryana.

Though no loss of life or property was reported initially, reports suggested that the earthquake measured over 4.2 on the Richter scale.

Reports also suggested that there could be another quake within 40 minutes, after the first tremor was felt at 11:38 pm. The epicentre of the earthquake was at Sonepat in Haryana. Later reports suggested that no more tremors were expected in the region.

However, citizens were worried about staying indoors and at several places came out in the open, anticipating another earthquake. It proved to be an ominous day for Delhiites as a bomb blast at High Court caused deaths and injuries. After the terrorist strike, the earthquake was reported, though no loss of life was known till late Wednesday night.
