Let us tell you that strong tremors were also felt at 10.17 minutes on Tuesday night. The epicenter of Tuesday's earthquake was the Hindu Kush region in Afghanistan.

 

A 6.6 magnitude earthquake came on Tuesday

The National Center for Seismology reported that the magnitude of the earthquake in Afghanistan was measured at 6.6. The epicenter of the earthquake was in the Hindu Kush region, 133 km southeast of Faizabad. The epicenter of the earthquake was at a depth of 156 km.

In India, apart from Delhi-NCR, strong tremors were felt in Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu-Kashmir, Madhya Pradesh, and Uttarakhand. People came out of their houses as soon as they realized. Due to the fear of other tremors of the earthquake, many people stayed in the open outside their houses till late at night.

 

Two people died in Afghanistan and 9 in Pakistan

Two people have died in Afghanistan due to the earthquake. Shafiullah Rahimi, a spokesman for Afghanistan's disaster relief ministry, said two people were killed in eastern Laghman province. Officials and aid workers said strong tremors were felt in Badakhshan and other northern regions.

What is the Richter scale?

In 1935, American geologist Charles F. Richter invented an instrument that could measure the velocity of seismic waves rising on the Earth's surface. Seismic waves can be converted into data through this device. The Richter scale usually works according to the logarithm. According to this, a whole number is expressed 10 times its original meaning. 10 on the Richter scale represents the maximum velocity.

 

Why do earthquakes happen?

The earth is mainly made up of four layers, the inner core, outer core, mantle, and crust. The crust and the upper mantle are called the lithosphere. This 50-kilometer thick layer is divided into sections called tectonic plates. These tectonic plates keep on moving from their place, but when they move too much, an earthquake occurs. These plates can move both horizontally and vertically. After this, they find their place and in such a situation one plate comes under the other.
