On May 15, a mild quake of 2.2 Magnitude on the Richter Scale hit the Pitampura area. Furthermore, on May 10, an earthquake measuring 3.5 on the Richter Scale hit the capital. Delhi falls on the Samutra faultline, which makes it prone to such quakes. As per NCS, between May 2015 and March 2019, more than 65 earthquakes have hit the NCR.
We hope everyone in the capital is safe.
