In a startling event, central Assam experienced an earthquake measuring 3.6 on the Richter Scale, sending tremors through the region, particularly impacting Karbi Anglong and Dima Hasao districts. The seismic activity was felt in various areas of the state, with significant effects reported in Karbi Anglong, Dima Hasao, Hojai, Cachar, Karimganj, Nagaon, Morigaon, and extending up to Sonapur near Guwahati.
However, it appears that the Upper Assam districts and the western part of the state may have been spared from substantial tremors. The extent of the impact on these regions remains uncertain at this point.
As of now, there is no confirmation regarding any damage to properties or casualties resulting from the earthquake. Authorities are actively assessing the situation to determine the aftermath and respond accordingly. The lack of immediate information on damages does offer a glimmer of hope that the quake might not have caused significant harm.
Beyond Assam’s borders, reports are emerging that the seismic activity extended to neighboring states, namely Manipur and Meghalaya. The ripple effects of the earthquake have prompted concerns in these regions as well, highlighting the interconnected nature of seismic events.
The incident serves as a reminder of the unpredictable nature of natural disasters and the need for preparedness in earthquake-prone areas. It also underscores the importance of regional cooperation in responding to such emergencies.
Residents are urged to remain vigilant and follow safety protocols. As the situation unfolds, further updates will be provided by local authorities.
