A shallow and robust earthquake of magnitude 6.1 struck the Myanmar-India border area early on Friday, India’s Nationwide Middle for Seismology stated.
The quake was felt in Chittagong in Bangladesh and as distant as Kolkata in japanese India, in keeping with witness accounts posted on European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre’s (EMSC) web site and by customers on Twitter.
“Very sturdy,” 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.
