Quake measuring 4.3 on Richter scale hits Delhi

November 26, 2007 08:27 IST

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.
