Earthquake lightning shocks were felt in the national capital Delhi-NCR on Sunday evening. Earthquake shocks have also been felt in some places of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh. However, there is no news of any kind of damage. Earthquake tremors have also been felt in Rewari, Dharuhera, Kund in Haryana. Earthquake shocks were felt for about 10 seconds. The center of the earthquake was in Jhajjar district of Haryana, 10 km below the ground. Earthquake intensity at the Richter scale is measured at 3.8.
Before this, on July 1, earthquake tremors were felt throughout North India including Delhi-NCR. Earthquake intensity was measured at 4.0 on Richter scale. The center of the earthquake was in Sonipat in Haryana. People had come out of the house-to-house with an impression of the earthquake.
One big problem in the Delhi-NCR region is the density of the population. Millions of buildings are decades old in the capital of more than two million and the capital has become adjacent to each other. In such a situation, there may be heavy loss of life in the event of a major earthquake. Anyway, there is a fault line near the Panipat area, located just a few miles away from Delhi, due to which earthquake can not be ruled out.
Experts also believe that there is a threat to earthquake along with weak buildings in Delhi. According to an estimate, 70-80% of the buildings in Delhi are not built to withstand a major setback of the earthquake. Do not panic if the earthquake is felt. Should stand in an empty place outside the house. Take the children and the elderly out of the house first, stand in the shore. Heavy luggage in the house should not be above the head.
