Earthequake in India/ Nepal

10 minutes ago the whole Delhi is shocked with sudden earthquake. Earthquake of 7.4 magnitude in Ritcher scale was felt in Delhi, Kolkata, NCR.

Seismicity in the Himalaya dominantly results from the continental collision of the India and Eurasia plates, which are converging at a relative rate of 40-50 mm/yr. Northward underthrusting of India beneath Eurasia generates numerous earthquakes and consequently makes this area one of the most seismically hazardous regions on Earth. The surface expression of the plate boundary is marked by the foothills of the north-south trending Sulaiman Range in the west, the Indo-Burmese Arc in the east and the east-west trending Himalaya Front in the north of India.
