Delhi Ncr earthquake : Earthquake Today in Delhi NCR, Strong earthquake tremors have been felt in Delhi-NCR. After Tuesday’s earthquake, people ran out of offices and homes in panic.
Strong earthquake tremors have been felt in Delhi-NCR. After the earthquake that occurred at 2.51 pm on Tuesday afternoon, people ran out of offices and homes in panic. According to the National Center for Seismology, the intensity of the earthquake was measured at 6.2. Whose centre was five kilometres deep from the ground in Nepal. Tremors were felt in many states including UP and Delhi.
Earlier, earthquake tremors were also felt at 2:25 pm. Its centre was also Nepal. At that time its intensity was measured at 4.6. Its tremors were felt in parts of Uttarakhand and UP. People got scared due to sudden earth shaking.
Earthquake tremors were felt in Shravasti at 2:51. Strong shocks were felt twice. The intensity of the earthquake was 4.6. Earthquake tremors were felt in many states of North India. Apart from Delhi, earthquake tremors were also felt in Ghaziabad, Noida and Faridabad.
Delhi Ncr earthquake : Why do earthquakes occur?
There are 7 plates inside the Earth, which keep rotating continuously. The zone where these plates collide is called fault line. The corners of the plates bend due to repeated collisions. When too much pressure builds up, the plates start breaking. The energy below finds a way out and after the disturbance an earthquake occurs.
Know what is the meaning of the centre and intensity of an earthquake?
The epicentre of an earthquake is the place just below which geological energy is released due to movement in the plates. Earthquake vibrations are more severe at this place. As the frequency of vibration increases, its effect decreases. However, if there is an earthquake with a magnitude of 7 or more on the Richter scale, the tremors are felt within a radius of 40 km. But it also depends on whether the seismic frequency is upward or downward. If the frequency of vibration is higher then less area will be affected.

How is the intensity of an earthquake measured and what is the measuring scale?
Earthquakes are measured using the Richter scale. It is called the Richter Magnitude Test Scale. Earthquakes are measured on the Richter scale from 1 to 9. An earthquake is measured from its center i.e. epicenter. The intensity of the energy released from within the earth during an earthquake is measured by it. This intensity determines the magnitude of the earthquake.
