5.3R in NEPAL

A strong 5.3R earthquake has been reported in Nepal, at about 65 km from Dadeldhura. The tremor was felt in India too. it is unlikely to be injuries as it looks it is well away from population centers. Tremors were reported from parts of Delhi, the larger National Capital Region and parts of North India. Tremors were reported from Delhi-NCR, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh. This is one of the stronger earthquakes for a while and looks like there is a little aggitation and increase the earthquake magnitudes in Nepal.
Although our stress calculations show the region to be 1 degree away from the epicenter. Not bad. See below. Also, download our mobile application if you have Android, see below.

If you look at the stresses for 20th November below, the accuracy is much better.
