#Earthquake trends on Twitter as strong tremors hit Delhi-NCR – The Indian Express

People in Delhi-NCR were shaken Tuesday by tremors from a magnitude 5.8 earthquake with an epicentre in Nepal. The National Center for Seismology said the earthquake hit Nepal at 2.28 pm. So far, no damage to life or property has been reported in India.
Many people took to Twitter to talk about the strong tremors and soon, #earthquake began trending on the platform. People shared videos showing things moving around them.
Joking about the tremors, a Twitter user wrote, “#NowSinging Zor ka jhatka haaye zoron se laga #earthquake”. Another person wrote, “So used to earthquakes in Delhi that I just use it as the occasional sauna belt experience now.”

Delhi and the entire Himalayan region fall in the seismic risk zone IV and V and are highly susceptible to earthquakes of more than magnitude six. Dr Ajay Paul, an earthquake scientist at the Wadia Institute of Himalayan Geology, said people who are indoors should place themselves under some sturdy furniture or push their back against an inside wall or archway when an earthquake strikes.
Paul says those outside should move to clear space and stay away from structures like buildings, bridges, and overhead power lines. He also suggests that establishments should ensure regular earthquake mock drills annually.
