After a 6.3 magnitude earthquake rocked the Himalayan region close to Pithoragarh in Uttarakhand along the Nepal border early on Wednesday, there were significant vibrations reported throughout north India. The earthquake occurred at 1.57 am on Wednesday in Nepal, roughly 90 km east-southeast of Pithoragarh in Uttarakhand, according to the National Centre for Seismology (NCS). People were awakened from their sleep by the tremors that were felt in Lucknow, Ghaziabad, and the nearby places. The tremors were also felt in Delhi-NCR. The past few days have seen a series of smaller earthquakes in the Himalayan area of Uttarakhand and neighboring Nepal. The NCS data indicated that the area had at least two 4.9 and 3.5 magnitude earthquakes late Tuesday night.
