Earthquake of magnitude 3.6 felt near Nashik in Maharashtra
Whether you live in India or Nepal, the latest earthquake to hit the region is enough to raise your hackles. However, while it may have caused significant damage, the earthquake itself hasn’t been catastrophic. A handful of fatalities have been reported in Doti and the surrounding villages.
While the jolt may have been brief, it certainly wasn’t pleasant. The earthquake struck just after 4 am and lasted for several minutes. The tremors haven’t stopped though, with several parts of India reporting strong tremors. One possible cause of the shaking is that the epicenter is located at a depth of 5 km underground.
The National Center for Seismology has confirmed that an earthquake of the magnitude 3.6 occurred near Nashik in Maharashtra. However, a more thorough investigation revealed that the epicenter was actually located in Pithoragarh in Nepal.
