Earthquake Shakes Mizoram, Northeast India

Northeastern state of Mizoram on Friday recorded another moderate earthquake, measuring 4.6 on the Richter scale, though there were no reports of damage or casualty, officials said.

The mountainous state had recorded successive quakes last week, which damaged many buildings and structures.

The tremor at 2.35 pm had its epicentre 25 km deep in eastern Mizoram”s Champhai district bordering Myanmar, an India Meteorological Department official said.

Tremors were also felt in neighbouring areas of Myanmar and northeastern region.

Of the six earthquakes recorded last week, a moderate one measuring 5.5 on the Richter scale shook the same Champhai areas and other adjoining northeastern states bordering Myanmar on June 22, damaging 31 structures, including roads, buildings and important installations.

Seismologists consider the mountainous northeast region as the sixth major earthquake-prone belt in the world.
