In a mild seismic event, tremors were experienced in Delhi and nearby areas on Thursday, originating from an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.1 near Afghanistan, according to the National Center for Seismology. The incident occurred at 2:50 pm, causing momentary unease among residents.

The earthquake’s epicenter, situated in Afghanistan, led to vibrations being felt in parts of Pakistan, specifically Lahore, and in various areas of Jammu and Kashmir, including Poonch. Fortunately, there have been no immediate reports of casualties or property damage resulting from the seismic activity.

Authorities were quick to respond to the situation, assuring the public that there is no cause for alarm. Emergency services are on standby, ready to address any unforeseen developments. The tremors, although perceptible, were relatively mild, and the region seems to have escaped any significant impact.

Citizens are advised to stay informed about safety measures during such incidents, including taking cover under sturdy furniture and avoiding panicking. The seismic event serves as a reminder of the importance of preparedness in earthquake-prone regions.

Seismologists are closely monitoring the situation for any aftershocks that might follow. Meanwhile, residents are encouraged to report any damages or issues arising from the earthquake to local authorities. As of now, it appears that the region has managed to weather the seismic activity without significant consequences.
