Mild tremors were felt in Andaman and Nicobar Islands on Monday. According to the National Center for Seismology, earthquake intensity on the Richter scale has been measured at 4.1. The epicenter of the earthquake is believed to be the predecessor of Campbell Bay.

Let us know that earlier on March 21, earthquake tremors were felt in Mokokchung, Nagaland. The quake intensity here was 4.2 on the Richter scale. The quake's epicenter was 77 km east of Mokochung. On 6 March in the same month, earthquake tremors were felt in Ladakh. The earthquake intensity here was measured at 3.6.

Know which earthquakes are dangerous

Explain that earthquakes with a magnitude usually up to 5 on the Richter scale are not dangerous, but it depends on the structure of the area. An earthquake of magnitude 5 can also be dangerous if the earthquake is on the banks of the river and there are tall buildings built without seismic techniques.

If there is an earthquake of magnitude 7 or above on the Richter scale, then the jolt intensifies in the vicinity of 40 km. But it also depends on whether the seismic frequency is upward or within the radius. If the frequency of vibration is up then the lower area will be affected.
