An earthquake of magnitude 3.5 hits Delhi NCR at 5:45 pm. The epicenter was found in the East Delhi majorly, Noida. The tremors were felt all across the national capital region.

Reports suggest that the earthquake was for around 8 seconds and 2.5 magnitudes were the Richter scale observed in Delhi on Sunday evening. The incident created panic among people and intend them to rush out of their residences.

The actual epicenter was reported to be the north-northeastern region of the Delhi. And that was in the NCT Delhi with a depth of 8 km.

“Earthquake of Magnitude: 3.5 just happened in Delhi NCR. Occurred on:12-04-2020, 17:45:03 IST, Latitude: 28.7 N and Longitude: 77.2 E, Depth: 8 Km, Region: NCT Delhi,” wrote Satyanarayan Pradhan, the DG of National Disaster Response Force

 

As of now no damage to life and livings has been traced in Delhi. As the magnitude was not at the peaks, o chances of heavy damages are less.

Ensure you do the following if you are indoors during an earthquake:

  • DROP to the ground; take COVER by getting under a sturdy table or other pieces of furniture; and HOLD ON until the shaking stops. If there isn’t a table or desk near you, cover your face and head with your arms and crouch in an inside corner of the building.
  • Stay away from glass, windows, outside doors and walls, and anything that could fall, such as lighting fixtures or furniture.
  • Stay in bed if you are there when the earthquake strikes. Hold on and protect your head with a pillow, unless you are under a heavy light fixture that could fall. In that case, move to the nearest safe place.
  • Do not use a doorway except if you know it is a strongly supported, load-bearing doorway and it is close to you. Many inside doorways are lightly constructed and do not offer protection.
  • Stay inside until the shaking stops and it is safe to go outside. Do not exit a building during the shaking. Research has shown that most injuries occur when people inside buildings attempt to move to a different location inside the building or try to leave.
  • DO NOT use the elevators.
  • Be aware that the electricity may go out or the sprinkler systems or fire alarms may turn on.
