The National Center for Seismology has reported a minor seismic event in the northern region of Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, India. The earthquake, measuring 3.6 on the Richter scale, was recorded at 01:07:22 IST on November 5, 2023.

According to the data released by the seismic monitoring agency, the earthquake occurred at a depth of 10 kilometers beneath the earth’s surface. The exact coordinates of the quake’s epicenter were identified at 28.73 latitude and 82.26 longitude, locating the seismic activity approximately 215 kilometers north of the historic city of Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh.

The earthquake, while considered minor in magnitude, can potentially cause slight vibrations and minimal impact on the surrounding areas. In instances like these, there is generally a lower likelihood of causing significant damage to structures or infrastructure.

No immediate reports of damage or casualties have been received in the aftermath of the seismic event. However, despite its relatively low magnitude, continuous monitoring and vigilance remain crucial to assess any potential aftershocks or seismic activity in the vicinity.

“Local authorities and residents are advised to stay cautious and prepared, given the seismic history of the region. Although this recent seismic occurrence appears to have caused minimal impact, it serves as a reminder of the need for readiness and swift response strategies in the face of potential seismic activities”.
