Andaman and Nicobar Islands Jolted with 9 Earthquakes in 2 Hours!


The morning in Andaman and Nicobar islands began with a shock, literally. The islands were hit by nine earthquakes, all within a matter of two hours. The tremors ranged from 4.7 to 5.2 magnitude and began from 5:14 am and lasted until 6:54 am. According to the Indian Meterological Department, the earthquakes had a depth of 10 km.

How bad is it?

Reports suggest that it is normal for the islands to experience 2-3 earthquakes per day. The Indian tectonic plate meets the Burmese microplate in Andaman trench, making the islands prone to earthquakes. Thankfully, no loss of life or property have been reported.

All is good in the islands for now and we hope it remains this way!
