Earthquakes less than five in magnitude are unlikely to cause much damage unless the structures are weak or at risk. Delhi is in Zone IV of the Seismic Map of India. Zones IV and V have a high probability of being destroyed.
In a previous report, top geologists had warned that such low- to moderate-intensity shocks could hit the Indian capital in the Delhi and surrounding regions in the near future.
“We cannot predict the time, location, or exact magnitude, but believe that there is constant seismic activity in the NCR region that can trigger a severe Delhi earthquake,” said Dr. Kalachand Sain, head of the Wadia Institute for Himalayan Geology, IANS, a first-class autonomous institute that reports to the Union’s Ministry of Science and Technology, told IANS.
From April 12 to May 29 this year, ten earthquakes have been registered in Delhi-NCR by the National Center for Seismology.
