Earthquake - India (New Delhi) NOV

New Delhi awoke to strong tremors at 4:43 am this morning (November 26). Major tremors were felt in and around Delhi, measuring 4.3 on the Richter Scale.

Although the earthquake was described by the Met department as one of "light intensity", which measured 4.3 on the Richter scale, it felt stronger than that because the epicentre was in Delhi-Haryana border, 4 km east of Najafgarh.

The local weather office puts the time of the tremor at 4.43 am. The tremors were strong enough to shake high-rise buildings in the capital. However, there have been no reports of any damage to property or loss of life.

Besides the capital, the tremor was felt in surrounding areas such as Noida (UP), Faridabad and Gurgaon (both in Haryana). - Source
