Delhi shaken by another earthquake of 2.7 magnitude

On Monday, April 13, 2020, another earthquake hit the Indian capital. It occured at 1.26pm with the epicenter in near Wazirpur in northeast Delhi at the depth of 5 km. The magnitude was estimated 2.7. and it is considered as mild.

No damage was reported.

It is a second earthquake in the national capital within the last 24 hours. Just the day before, on Sunday (April 12, 2020), a moderate earthquake with 3.5 magnitude caused tremors across Delhi and neighbouring areas.

Delhi is a fourth highest seismic zone in the country, yet it rarely becomes an epicenter. Rather it experinces tremors from the earthquakes which occur in the neighbouring territories like Himalayan and central Asian territories.
