Late night tremors were felt in Leh in Ladakh. The earthquake on the Richter Scale was 3.1. According to the National Center for Seismology, vibration was felt in the earth at 1.06 pm Monday-Tuesday. No loss of life or property has been reported from these earthquakes.

On Thursday, earthquake tremors were felt in Ladakh. According to the National Center for Seismology, the earthquake was 3.5 on the Richter scale. Earlier on March 6, in the same month, earthquake tremors were felt in Ladakh. Then the earthquake intensity was 3.6. At the same time, on February 18, earthquake tremors were felt in Ladakh too. The quake had a magnitude of 3.7 and a depth of about 200 kilometers was recorded.

Why does earthquake occur?

The earth is divided into many layers and there are many types of plates under the ground. These plates are stuck together, but sometimes these plates slip, due to which there is an earthquake. Many times it vibrates more and its intensity increases, due to this many water fires have come on the earth. In India, some zones have been determined on the basis of geographical movement occurring in the Earth’s crusts and in some places it is more and some places less. On the basis of these possibilities, India has been divided into 5 zones, which tells where the highest earthquake risk is in India. It has the highest probability of earthquake in Zone-5 and less than 4, 3 less than that.

What to do and what not to do when an earthquake occurs?

1. As soon as you feel the tremors, you should sit under a strong table and hold it tightly.
2. As long as the tremors continue or you are not sure that you can get out safely, then sit in the same place.
3. If you live in a tall building, stay away from the window.
4. If you are in bed, stay there and hold it tightly. Keep a pillow on your head.
5. If you are outside, then go to some empty place… that is, away from buildings, houses, trees, electric poles.
6. If you are driving a car, slow the car down and park it in an empty area. Keep sitting in the car until the shock ends.
7. If you are outside, on the road or in the market, then reach the ground or open space nearby.
8. Do not stay close to the tall buildings and walk away from them.
9. If you are stuck somewhere, do not run, it can cause more sharp shocks.
10. Try to stay away from trees and electric wires.
