Earthquake in Delhi

An earthquake shook Delhi and its neighboring areas in the wee hours of Monday morning on 26th November 2007. The earthquake was a relatively strong one and lasted for about 4-5 seconds. I must mention that it was a little scary as earthquakes have a history of widespread devastation in India, and the memories of that poignant republic day in 2001 are still fresh.

Update: The earthquake occurred at exactly 4:43 AM IST and measured 4.3 on the Richter scale. The epicenter as per news reports was in Bahadurgard, although this cant be confirmed at the moment.
The Delhi Met Department website should be able to provide more details in the days to come.
