Guwahati : Assam was rocked by four earthquakes subsequently within 24 hours at different time intervals. The epicenter of the earthquake was Arunachal Pradesh with its powerful tremors felt across North east.
The epicenter of all these earthquakes is 62-65 Kilometre north of Bomdilla, very close to the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) of China. This is quite unsealed that four such tremors hit the region in a span of 12 hours and that too with the same epicenter.
This is unprecedented in the recent memory that a series of such earthquakes have originated with the same epicenter. The seismologists have suggested that there is something cooking inside the crust of the earth.
Eastern Himalaya is always a very sensitive zone and considered Young Mountain as it is increasing by as meter per century.
But seismologists are not predicting a mega-earthquake any time, but consider the series of earthquakes as ominous.
There are so far no major damage reported from any parts of the region but the General panic amongst ordinary people have set in. The authorities are also in standby mode.
