Earthquakes that hit Nepal have an impact on the Gangetic plains because the soft soil of the region amplifies seismic energy originating from the Himalayan belt, seismologists said.
On Friday night, a strong earthquake of magnitude 6.4 jolted Nepal sending waves of tremors across north India, including in Delhi-NCR. The National Centre for Seismology (NCS) had said the epicentre of the earthquake, which struck around 11.30 pm, was in Nepal, about 227 km north of Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh and 331 km west northwest of Kathmandu.
It has claimed at least 143 lives and injured more than 150 in the Himalayan nation, and is the worst since 2015.
While seismologists warned that consecutive earthquakes are foretelling bigger seismic shocks in the western Nepal Himalayan region, an examination of the preliminary reports published by the NCS paint a geographical picture of the parts of India that experience these Nepal quakes and hence, are susceptible to them.
