Mild earthquake hits Himachal's Chamba region

Earlier in the month of June, six mild quakes hit Chamba for three days simultaneously from May 19, two on each day, triggering panic among the people.

Himachal Pradesh had suffered the most devastating earthquake in 1905 in the Kangra valley, killing more than 20,000 people.

Scientists have warned that in the future the Himalayan region is prone to more earthquakes and also warned that a major earthquake may hit North India and that its magnitude is going to be greater than the 7.9 earthquake that had shaken Nepal two years ago.
