Moderate 5.4 Magnitude Earthquake Rocks Honda Thathri in Jammu and Kashmir

Honda Thathri, located in the Doda district of Jammu and Kashmir, experienced a moderate earthquake measuring 5.4 on the Richter scale today. The epicenter of the earthquake was situated in the Honda Thathri area, approximately 6 kilometers beneath the Earth's surface.

The earthquake occurred at around 1338 hours, resulting in several seconds of tremors that caused panic among residents. The intensity of the quake was significant enough to shake buildings and disrupt normal activities in the picturesque region. Witnesses reported hearing a rumbling sound accompanying the shaking, further contributing to the sense of alarm.

Upon the spread of news regarding the earthquake, concerned locals took to social media platforms to share their experiences. Many residents stated that they felt their homes swaying, with household items falling off shelves and walls showing cracks. However, no immediate reports of casualties or major damages have been received.

In response to the situation, authorities swiftly initiated emergency services and mobilized disaster management teams to assess the impact of the earthquake and provide assistance as necessary. Rescue teams have been dispatched to the affected areas to ensure the safety of residents and evaluate any potential structural damage.

The region where Honda Thathri is located falls within a seismically active zone, making seismic activity relatively common. Past occurrences of similar tremors lead experts to believe that today's earthquake may be an aftershock resulting from previous seismic events.

Updates regarding the situation and any potential aftershocks will be provided as new information becomes available. Local authorities, in collaboration with seismic experts, are closely monitoring the situation to ensure the safety and well-being of residents in the affected region.
