An earthquake of magnitude of 5.5, with its epicentre in Rudraprayag, Uttarakhand, registered tremors as far away as Delhi, at around 8.49 p.m on Wednesday.
An official in the Uttarakhand disaster management division said there were no reports of death, injury and even damage to structures. “Reports so far, from all across the district, indicate nothing adverse. It was a mild event,” said police-constable Parveen. He is also part of the State’s disaster management set-up.
People in Delhi saw wall hangings tremble but the shaking was also barely perceptible to several.
