Frequent occurrence of earthquakes can also be a sign of some major danger.
Once again the earth of Delhi NCR shook due to earthquake. This has happened for the second time in three consecutive days. Earlier on November 3, strong earthquake tremors were felt from Delhi to Patna, the intensity of which was measured at 6.4 on the Richter scale. The intensity of the earthquake that occurred on Monday evening was approximately 5.6 on the Richter scale. Nepal was the epicenter of both the earthquakes. Of course, the intensity of the earthquake that occurred on Monday was less than the previous earthquake, but its terror was more.
Many houses were razed to the ground due to the earthquake that occurred in Nepal late on Friday night, due to which more than 150 people died and almost the same number of people were missing. In such a situation, when earthquake tremors were felt on Monday, people came out of their homes in panic. There was an atmosphere of chaos for a long time. This is even more of a matter of concern for Delhi NCR because there has been an unexpected increase in earthquake incidents this year. The special thing is that this year the people of Delhi NCR felt the first shock of the earthquake on the first day of the year itself. Since then the intensity of earthquakes has been continuously increasing. Questions are also being raised whether these repeated earthquakes are not indicating some major disaster?
