Nepal Earthquake: Today Earthquake Strikes Dhading District in Nepal, The National Earthquake Monitoring and Research Centre has reported that an earthquake originating in Dhading district occurred at 7:39 a.m.
Fortunately, no casualties or damage have been reported due to this seismic event. The tremor’s effects were also felt in various districts of the Bagmati and Gandaki provinces.
Nepal frequently experiences earthquakes due to its location at the convergence point of the Tibetan and Indian tectonic plates, which approach each other by approximately two meters every century, leading to the periodic release of pressure in the form of seismic activity.
Notably, on October 16, a 4.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal’s Sudurpaschim province.
In 2015, a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake and subsequent aftershocks claimed the lives of approximately 9,000 people.
Nepal is ranked as the 11th most earthquake-prone country globally, as highlighted in the government’s post-disaster needs assessment (PDNA) report.
