Earthquake in India: A quake of magnitude 3.2 hit Senapati district in Manipur at 5:48 pm today. However, no damage to property or loss of life was reported. This comes in the wake of another quake on March 27 in the region. Tremors were felt in another north-eastern state, which is Sikkim, early in the morning. The quake was measured 4.6 on the Richter scale.  Manipur itself was shaken on March 9 early in the morning. No damage to life or property was caused then too. However, panicked people had rushed out of their homes into open ground and they stayed there fearing aftershocks.

Manipur had been hit by another earthquake of the magnitude of 4.7 on the Richter scale earlier this month on May 6. Recuse operations were carried out but no loss of lives had been reported. Although telephone networks had been dismantled due to the quake. The epicentre of the quake had been reported to be somewhere near the India-Myanmar border. The north eastern part of India has been regularly facing the wrath of earthquakes since last year.

Manipur had been at the receiving end of another such earthquake in March 2017, Even though reports suggested no loss of life and property, the tremors had been enough to create panic in the public. Just after the earthquake people had rushed out of their homes and to open grounds and stayed out for a long time in the fear of aftershocks or a bigger tremor.
