5.0 magnitude earthquake strikes Andaman

According to National Centre for Seismology, a unit of Ministry of Earth Sciences, the quake, whose epicentre was in the Andaman islands region, occurred at 09:04 AM at a depth of 10 km.

However, it was not so powerful as to merit a tsunami warning.

India has a dedicated tsunami warning centre that sends alerts to states and neighbouring littoral countries in case of an earthquake.

There were no immediate reports of loss of life or property.
