    4.3 magnitude earthquake strikes Andaman Islands

    There were no immediate reports of loss of life or property. However, it was not so powerful as to merit a tsunami warning.

    The Andaman and Nicobar archipelago falls under a high seismic zone. India has a dedicated tsunami warning centre that sends alerts to states and neighbouring littoral countries in case of an earthquake.

    Earlier on October 6, an earthquake of magnitude 4.9 had hit the Andaman Sea. On October 3, an earthquake of mild intensity - of magnitude 4.5, yellow stage - hit the Andaman Islands.
