Hello Friends...

Today around 4:43 am Tremors shook Delhi as it was hit by a EarthQuake..on the richter scale the magnitude of Earthquake was 4:3 but it felt more as Epicentre of the quake was in and around Delhi and Haryana border.

Quake measuring 4.3 on Richter scale hits Delhi

Delhi and neighbouring areas of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana were rocked by an earthquake at 4.42 am on Monday, forcing people to rush out of their homes.

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 on the Delhi-Haryana border.

People were shaken in their sleep as buildings rocked for a few seconds.

There were no immediate reports of any damage to life and property.

Besides the capital, the tremor was felt in surrounding areas such as Noida in Uttar Pradesh and Faridabad and Gurgaon in Haryana

Personal experience: i was in deep sleep..suddenly i thought someone is shaking my bed.very badly .so as everything in my room..you could hear the noise of the tremor,from deep sleep i;ve been thrown out of my bed ...and within second i was standing and ready to move out from my house..Dad and mum was shouting..so as my sister.Ouch

In the colony park..we could see everyone shivering..as in Delhi winter has arrrived but  people were in such hurry that they forgot to wear sweater or carry a shawl..and we were forced to be in the park in chilly winter morning .The experience i quite cant express in words so much so..that i am in mood to sleep..or ready to go back to my room..

One aunty came out of her house and shouted who is shaking my house.!! everyone shouted back..its a EARTHQUAKE ma'sm...we could see people without slippers as well..it was a Scary experience..Ouch

Few common things i have noticed ..

Wow! This is big news.... I guess nobody was injured though, because it was only a 4.3

Yeah.... normally, though, what I do when there is an earthquake, is stand beneath the threshold of a door (Meaning the entrance of the door... you know how there is molding on top of each door... under that)... research shows that that is the safest place to be when your in your house during an earthquake...
