A shallow and robust earthquake of magnitude 6.1 struck the Myanmar-India border area early on Friday, India’s Nationwide Heart for Seismology stated.
The quake used to be felt in Chittagong in Bangladesh and as some distance away as Kolkata in jap India, in keeping with witness accounts posted on Ecu-Mediterranean Seismological Centre’s (EMSC) site and by way of customers on Twitter.
“Very robust,” one such witness posted on EMSC from Chittagong, which is about 184 km (115 miles) west of the quake’s epicentre.
EMSC pegged the temblor’s magnitude at 5.8, after having earlier given it a magnitude of 6.0 and said the epicentre was about 126 km southeast of Aizawl in northeastern India.
