Mild Tremors felt in Himachal


Shimla: Tremors were felt in several parts of Himachal Pradesh early Wednesday, after an earthquake hit a sparsely-populated mountainous region of Pakistan’s Balochistan province, the weather office here said.

“Mild tremors were felt in several parts of Shimla, Kangra and Chamba districts,” the meteorological office said. However, there are no reports of any loss of life or damage to property in the hill state.

The earthquake that occurred at about 0123 hrs on Wednesday jolted most of the major cities in Pakistan, including Quetta, Karachi and Multan, according the met office. Tremors of the 7.4 magnitude earthquake were felt as far as Delhi and its adjoining areas too.
