An earthquake measuring 2.7 on the Richter Scale hit Ghaziabad on Wednesday morning. According to the National Centre for Sesimology, the tremors were felt at 4.05 am at a depth of 5 kilometres.
There were no reports of any loss of life or damage to property because of the earthquake.
The Delhi-NCR region has recorded more than 15 low-intensity quakes from April this year.
Meanwhile, scientists had earlier warned that the national capital might witness a massive earthquake imminent in the Himalayan foothills. The impact of such an earthquake might be "heavily damaging" for a densely populated city like Delhi.
Scientists base their conclusions based on the fact that the region had remained seismically quiet for 600-700 years, creating an “enormous stacking up of seismic strain”, which could result in an earthquake of a magnitude of 8.5 or more at any time in the near future.
