According to the news, people felt the tremors of the earthquake in Delhi as well as some areas of NCR, such as Noida and Ghaziabad, although this has not yet been confirmed. Senior scientists of the country have already feared many times that a major earthquake may occur in Delhi and its surrounding areas.
Sometime ago scientists had predicted a major earthquake in the Himalayas and said that a large earthquake can occur at any time with a series of earthquakes in the Himalayan range. Its intensity can be eight or even higher on the Richter scale. According to scientists, many such small earthquakes are a sign of great destruction.
