Yup. my sis just called up from Noida - there was indeed a strong earthquake in north India- so much that our cars were shaking. No damage in delhi apparently but Jammu has suffered a bit - that's all I know at the moment.

the bbc website doesnt have anything right now and since i dont have access to a telly I cant watch the news.

Hope there's not much damage or deaths from this.

Thankfully not much damage in Delhi.. but Islamabad had a lot of damage, and so did PoK and Jammu and Kashmir...

I reached home at 03:00 am from office & was sleeping while tremors happened & felt swinging in my head. Thought, may be because of overwork i was experiencing it.

Again back office during afternoon, the second shock struck around 16.30. Though of less intensity, but pretty strong. Got to my head again.

True the earthquake didnt do much damage in Delhi.. But it was the strongest earthquake i experienced here in Delhi... my computer was shaking like anything...

I was logged onto Team-Bhp at that time.. and just 2 minutes after the earthquake stopped, i started this thread..
