An earthquake of 3.2 magnitude hit Delhi and the surrounding areas on Wednesday June 3.

Earthquake of magnitude 3.0 struck 17km East of Faridabad (Haryana) at 10:42 pm today.

No casualties were reported during the earthquake.

Delhi and its surrounding area have experienced at least 6-7 earthquakes in the last one month

Earlier on May 29, a mild intensity earthquake of 4.6 on Richter scale shivered the parts of eastern Haryana and Delhi-National Capital Region at 9PM. The earthquake’s epicentre was Rohtak in Haryana and at the depth of 3.3 kilometres.

Professor of Geology at Jawaharlal Nehru University said on the topic about earthquakes, that there is no need to worry about it as these tremors occur every year but yes it is necessary to be vigilant.

There are small earthquake tremors in Delhi which are 3-4 standard on the Richter scale. However, the danger is when the earthquake magnitude is above 4 on the Richter scale, especially in those areas where the houses are not strongly built.

However, no major earthquake shock has been predicted yet. But because Delhi Seismic Zone reads in four, it is necessary that these houses have a safety audit
