New Delhi: Another major earthquake seems to have hit Nepal and North India once again. The earthquake that was very powerful hit almost the whole of North India from Kolkata, to New Delhi, Lucknow, Patna, Meerut, Rampur, Moradabad.
In some parts of India the tremors were so much powerful that people came rushing out of their houses to seek safety in the open space. Latest reports suggest that the epicenter of the earthquake once again was Nepal and the intensity of the earthquake is estimated to be 7.1 on the Richter scale.
The fresh tremors were felt across at 12.40 pm India time today. So far there are no news of damage in any part of the country, though details are expected to come out in the next few hours.
A report by Reuters claims that in Kathmandu, the tremors were particularly strong. Merely a few weeks ago, land-locked nation of Nepal was hit by a very powerful earthquake that has thus far killed more than 8000 people and has destroyed almost a complete region in the Kathmandu Valley and surrounding areas.
