Delhi hit by Earthquake

I sleep through most things, which i consider to be a tremendous advantage and strength, but even i was rudely awakened at 4:30 AM today i.e 26th November with one of the strongest earthquakes i have felt ever, possibly.

A 4.3 on the Richter Scale ,with the source at the Delhi Haryana Border , Delhi University, GT road ,  hit Delhi in the wee hours of the morning. While i cant comment on other areas of Delhi, Defence Colony had a few people stepping out of their houses and a few car alarms going off.. while the magnitude of the earthquake was not very high , the strength and intensity was much higher owing to the closeness of the epicenter i guess.. barely 20 kms from South Delhi… while ceiling fans shake at the smallest incentive, what did surprise me was that a fully loaded cupboard ended up oscillating….. and this was a first !
While details are still unavailable currently, no injuries or deaths have been reported.
