Apparently there was a earthquake in delhi on February 25th, 2010 around 0050 Hrs. There are no confirmed news as of now. Tweeples are tweeting away on twitter about the earthquake. Non of the TV News channel have anything on them as of now. They are all showing Sachin's 200 quake or some other news.

And she is an experienced one :( :

YES. Im VERY SURE. It was an EARTHQUAKE. Epicentre cant be here. But it was a bad one somewhere. I have felt many in my life Latur, Kashmir.

Though seems it wasnt that huge. People in Noida are saying they didnt feel anything.

Though seems otherwise in Gurgaon

UPDATE: Twitter is dying down on earthquake tweets in delhi. Seems it was a small one. Hope all stays well.

UPDATE 2: Apparently it wasn't just Delhi but some in Uttaranchal as well.

Mild earthquake in Bageshwar Uttaranchal. Some people in South Delhi felt tremors. Seems nothing major.
