As the new year is here, there is some bad news that we need to be aware of. A few hours ago, a magnitude 3.8 earthquake was felt in and around New Delhi. The epicenter of the earthquake was located in Haryana, and it was approximately 4 kilometers deep. The earthquake was not much felt by the people. This may be because the whole country is busy celebrating the new year and this may be one of the reasons why much panic was not spread in the city. But some people did feel the tremors and used various social media platforms to share this information.
This earthquake is a reminder of the potential danger that we face, especially in Delhi. Earthquakes are a natural phenomenon and there is usually no way to predict them, so it is always important for us to be prepared for them. It is also important to start thinking of ways to reduce the negative impacts of earthquakes. For instance, we should start by making sure that our homes are built to withstand the forces of an earthquake. We should also make sure that our furniture and any other possessions are securely bolted to the walls and floors, to minimize the risk of them getting damaged.
It is also important to stay informed about the latest news and updates relating to earthquakes so that we can be ready to take action when required. We should also start educating ourselves on the proper procedures that need to be followed in the event of an earthquake, such as evacuating the building, turning off utilities, and taking shelter in a predefined safe area.
