According to the National Earthquake Monitoring and Research Center, the epicenter of the earthquake was near Belkotgadi in Nuwakot district of Nepal. At this time there is no news of loss of life or property. Further information is awaited.

Earlier on July 31, earthquakes were felt in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. There was a magnitude 5.5 earthquake here. The intensity of the earthquake was so strong that its effect was seen in many districts of Bihar.

The Earth is mainly composed of four layers. Inner core, outer core, mantle and crust. The crust and core of the upper mantle are called lithosphere. This 50 km thick layer is divided into several sections called tectonic plates.

These tectonic plates continue to vibrate in their place and when this plate vibrates too much, an earthquake is felt.

The epicenter of an earthquake is the place just below which the earth begins to shake due to the movement of the plates. The impact of the earthquake is more in this place or its surroundings.

If there is an earthquake with a magnitude of 7 or more on the Richter scale, then the earthquake is stronger within a radius of 40 km around.
