Earthquake tremors have been felt twice in the last 4 days in Delhi-NCR and other region. Nepal has been the epicentre of both earthquakes, which have caused devastation in the Himalayan country. For the first time, the intensity of the earthquake was measured at 6.4 on the Richter scale. So far, 14 earthquakes have occurred in Nepal in the last couple of days.
Now the big question arises why do earthquakes take place again and again? What is the reason behind this?

On Nepal earthquake, National Center for Seismology scientist Sanjay Kumar Prajapati, while speaking to reporters in Delhi, said that an earthquake has occurred once again in Nepal and the intensity of the earthquake was 5.6.

“There have been 14 tremors so far, this was the highest intensity earthquake so far. Whenever a big earthquake occurs, aftershocks continue for a few days. Tremors were felt in Delhi for 10 seconds,” he added.
Experts say when the intensity of earthquakes is high, aftershocks keep following for a couple of days. The earthquake tremors were felt in the country on Monday also. The intensity of the earthquake was measured at 5.6. This time also Nepal was the epicentre.
Strong earthquake tremors were felt in India and Nepal on 3 November. The earthquake of magnitude 6.4 has caused a lot of damage. Many buildings have collapsed in Nepal so far. 157 people have died due to being buried under the debris of the building, while many people have been injured.
