Not since the earthquake of 2005 have the tremors in Srinagar been bad enough to force me out of the house. I grabbed a blanket & ran. I didn’t remember to take my phone & so was unable to tweet “earthquake” while the damn ground was shaking.— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) February 12, 2021
Manjinder Sirsa confirmed the tremors felt in Delhi.
