Right now the outbreak of coronavirus is wreaking havoc all over the world. On the other hand, Delhi, the capital of the country, is constantly suffering from tremors. According to the National Center for Seismology, a low-intensity earthquake occurred in Delhi on Friday. The epicenter of this earthquake was in the Pitampura area of Delhi. This is the fourth time in the last few days when Delhiites have felt the tremors. The magnitude of this earthquake on the Richter scale was 2.2 today. No loss of life or property has been reported due to the earthquake.
The tremors were felt at 11.28 am on Friday morning in the country’s capital, Delhi. The earthquake on Friday morning was 2.2 on the Richter scale. The tremor was felt in Delhi for the second time within a week. Earlier on 10 May, there was an earthquake in Delhi at 1.29 pm. Its center was deep within 5 kilometers of land in the east.
The earthquake occurred at 11.28 am. Due to its low intensity, most people did not feel tremors. But these frequent earthquakes have increased the concern of the people. Earlier on May 10 and 12, April 13, tremors were felt in Delhi. The Delhiites, who are suffering from Corona, have felt four earthquake tremors since the lockdown. Generally, earthquakes of greater than 6 magnitudes are classified as dangerous.
The earthquake tremors were felt once again in Delhi between the Corona crisis and the lockdown. The tremor was of low intensity on Friday. Its center was recorded in the Pitampura and Wazirpur areas of Delhi. The earthquake struck a magnitude of 2.2 at 11.28 am.
No casualties and losses have been reported in this tremor. This is because of earthquakes of greater than 6 magnitude are placed in dangerous category. An earthquake measuring 2.2 on the Richter Scale of the National Center for Seismology was measured on Friday.
According to the information received, mild tremors were felt in East Delhi on Friday. Some people came out of the house due to earthquake tremors here. Before 12 and 13 April, on 10 May, tremors were felt in Delhi.
On May 10, there was a 3.4 magnitude earthquake. At the same time, on April 13, there was an earthquake of 3.5 magnitude. While the magnitude of the earthquake on April 14 was measured at 2.7 on the reactor scale. Delhi is always considered a sensitive area in terms of the earthquake. Geologists have placed Delhi and its surrounding areas in Zone-4.
Earthquake-prone areas in Delhi include areas close to the Yamuna coast.
Earthquake tremors were felt in Delhi for the second time within 5 days. Earthquake tremors were felt in Delhi at 11:28 am on Friday, whose intensity has been measured 2.2 on the Richter scale. The epicenter of the earthquake was found in Pitampura, Delhi and its depth is being told 8 km.
However, the intensity of the earthquake is very low due to which there is no possibility of such damage. But for the second time in just 5 days, the tremors are going to raise concerns. Earlier on May 10, tremors were felt in Delhi-NCR with a magnitude of 3.4.
This is the fourth time in the last 1 month between lockdowns when earthquake tremors have been felt in Delhi-NCR. Earlier on 12 and 13 April, earthquake tremors were felt in Delhi NCR.
According to Skymet’s Vice President and Meteorologist Mahesh Palawan, when there is a high intensity earthquake in a region, then there is a possibility of a low intensity earthquake within a few days, it is also called aftershock. The earthquake occurring in the aftershock is sometimes half the intensity and does not cause much damage.
The Earthquake Occurred On April 12 And 13
Earlier on May 10, earthquake tremors were felt amid lockdown. Its intensity on the Richter scale was measured at 3.5. Felt at 1.45 pm on 10 May. The epicenter of the quake was near Wazirpur in north-east Delhi at a depth of five kilometers from the surface. Earth shivered for a few seconds due to the earthquake. People got frightened due to this.
Let us know that after the change of weather in the national capital Delhi on May 10, the tremors of the earthquake were felt. On that day, thunderstorms knocked in many areas of Delhi. The intensity of the earthquake in Delhi was measured 3.5 on the Richter scale. People came out of their homes in some areas after the earthquake.
Significantly, this is the fourth time earthquake tremors have been felt in Delhi after the Corona crisis. Earlier Delhi had witnessed two earthquakes back to back in April. On April 13, there was an earthquake of magnitude 3.5, the depth of which was 8 kilometers in Delhi NCR. There was also a low-intensity earthquake on 14 April, measuring 2.7 on the reactor scale.
Delhi Was The Center In 2001 And 2004 Also
In terms of the earthquake, Delhi falls in seismic zone four. The epicenter earthquakes occurred in 2004 and 2001 before this. While its intensity was 2.8 on the Richter scale in 2004, 3.4 was recorded in 2001.
Delhi-NCR Is Sensitive To Earthquake
Please tell here that Delhi-NCR is very sensitive in terms of the earthquake. Indeed, in terms of macroseismic zoning mapping, India is divided into a total of 5 zones, of which Delhi is in Zone 4 and is considered dangerous. Out of the total 5 zones, Zone 2 is considered to be in the least sensitive category, while Zone-5 is the area that is prone to earthquakes.
Earlier, an official from the Seismology Center said, “Delhi has often seen earthquakes in two to three frequencies. This is a normal phenomenon, there is nothing to worry about. Over 100 earthquakes in the city in the last ten years Have come
What To Do If There Is An Earthquake
During the earthquake, one should come out of the house and building and go towards the open ground. During the earthquake, one should not stand near the building or any big building. Lift should not be used at all during the earthquake. Stairs should be used during an earthquake. Also, turn off all the power switches of the house.
