Earthquake jolts felt in Nepal’s Bagmati province

Earthquake tremors were felt once again in Nepal at 5.26 am today. Its intensity was measured at 5.3 on the Richter scale.

According to the National Center for Earthquake Monitoring and Research, the epicenter of the earthquake was near Belkotgadi in Nuwakot district of Nepal. At present there is no news of loss of life or property. Further information is awaited.

Earlier on July 31, earthquake tremors were felt in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. There was an earthquake of 5.5 magnitude here. The intensity of the earthquake was so strong that its effect has been seen in many districts of Bihar.

Earth is mainly made up of four layers. Inner core, outer core, mantle and crust. The crust and upper mantle core are called lithosphere. This 50 km thick layer is divided into several sections called tectonic plates.

These tectonic plates keep vibrating in their place and when this plate vibrates too much, an earthquake is felt.

The epicenter of an earthquake is the place just below which the earth starts to shake due to the movement of the plates. The impact of earthquake is more in this place or its surrounding areas.

If there is an earthquake with a magnitude of 7 or more on the Richter scale, then the tremor is stronger within a radius of 40 km around.
