 A moderate earthquake measuring 5.5 on the Richter scale hit Uttarakhand on Wednesday night, at around 8.45 p.m., causing tremors in the hill state and adjoining areas, including Delhi and NCR.
It triggered panic at many places, especially Dehradun - the state capital - and people rushed out of their houses. No loss of life or property was, however, reported from anywhere.
The India Meteorological Department official said the epicentre of the earth quake was 121 km away from Dehradun, in Rudraprayag, and at a depth of 30 km. This is the second earthquake in Uttarakhand in the past 24 hours. On Tuesday, a 3.3 magnitude quake was reported in the state.
