Default Tremors in North India

hi ,

Was just informed by my friends up north that they felt tremors , news is also being flashed on tv , I hope all TBHPians and families are ok . I hear that the tremors themselves were harmless but the panic is whats to fear.

.........take care and be safe ...

Do I understand correctly that they occurred at 11:17 this morning? The reason I ask is that some people here felt tremors last night. None felt here in Dharamsala after daybreak.
