The earthquake, measuring a magnitude of 5.4, originated in Doda, Jammu and Kashmir, according to the National Centre for Seismology. The tremors were felt around 1:30 PM and lasted for a few seconds.

Fortunately, there have been no immediate reports of damage or casualties resulting from the earthquake. The impact of the tremors was also felt in Chandigarh, Noida, Jaipur, and other surrounding regions. Surprisingly, the seismic activity was so intense that it reached as far as Islamabad, Lahore, and adjoining areas in Pakistan.

Social media platforms, particularly Twitter, were flooded with updates and reactions from the startled population. Many users shared memes, making light of the frequent occurrence of such incidents in recent times. Videos capturing the moment were also shared, with one showing a chandelier swaying vigorously due to the earthquake’s impact.

This event follows a mild tremor that Delhi experienced just a few weeks ago. Agencies had reported a 5.2 magnitude earthquake originating in Afghanistan at that time.

Authorities are closely monitoring the situation and advising residents to remain calm and vigilant. Earthquakes are natural phenomena, and it is crucial for people to be prepared and aware of safety protocols during such occurrences.

As the news develops, it is essential for residents in affected areas to stay updated through reliable sources and follow any instructions or advisories issued by local authorities.
