 Why Does Delhi-NCR Keep Getting Hit By Frequent Earthquakes?

June 9: On Monday afternoon, the capital city of India witnessed yet another low-intensity earthquake. The National Center for Seismology revealed the epicentre of the earthquake was near Gurgaon, Haryana, and its depth was recorded to be 19 km with a magnitude of 2.1. Mild tremors were reportedly felt in Delhi, Noida, and the surrounding areas for a few seconds.

Just a week ago, on June 3, Delhi NCR had witnessed another earthquake of magnitude 3.2 on the Richter scale, which struck 19 km southeast of Noida. Further back, on May 29, an earthquake measuring 4.6 on the Richter scale jolted the NCR.

Since April 2020, New Delhi and nearby areas have recorded more than 14 earthquakes. According to the National Center for Seismology, all these earthquakes fell into the range of low to medium, as their magnitude was less than five.

This phenomenon, involving a collection of related earthquakes focused on a particular area for a limited period, is called ‘swarm’ activity. The swarm activity may or may not have an apparent triggering event behind it: say a large earthquake or a huge landslide
