Panic gripped people in Uttar Pradesh India when an earthquake said to be measuring 6.8 on the Richter scale with the epicentre in Sikkim jolting north India at 6.17pm yesterday.

The state Meteorological department described the quake as of "moderate intensity" in Uttar Pradesh. It has not ruled out the possibility of after shocks. Earlier, on September 7, tremors had hit some areas of UP adjoining Delhi. However, on Sunday no causality of any kind was reported till reports last came in. State Met Director, J. P. Gupta said that after-shocks can occur in the next 24 hours.

The people in Lucknow also felt the tremors for 30 seconds. Initially, people did not realise but later came out in open spaces leaving offices and homes when they felt the tremors. The impact was more visible in high rise buildings. But at some places, people did not feel anything and came to know about the quake later through news channels. Similar reports were received from Kanpur, Varanasi, Allahabad, Meerut and Gorakhpur.

Significantly, the city does not have any seismometer to record earthquake. A senior officer of the earthquake division, at the regional office of the Geological Survey of India (GSI), Lucknow, said that they rely on data of the Meteorological Department. (Source: Times of India)
