Massive Earthquake At India-Myanmar Border

Huge tremors were felt in Kolkata after a whopper of an earthquake measuring 6.8 on the Richter scale hit the areas on the India-Myanmar border. Strong tremors were reported in Guwahati and Patna, mild ones were felt in Chennai and Delhi.

The earthquake hit at 7.25 pm and at a depth of 134 km. No damage has been reported so far from Guwahati. (Did you feel the quake? Post here)

People blew conch shells on some streets in Kolkata to sound alarm and alert residents of high-rises, said some eyewitnesses.

Because it was a land-based earthquake, there is no danger of a tsunami.
