Kathmandu: Two earthquakes today struck northwestern Nepal, sending tremors through the region, the country’s earthquake monitoring center said.
Several houses were reportedly damaged in Bajhang district, but there were no immediate reports of any casualties.
A key highway connecting the district to neighboring areas was blocked by a landslide triggered by the earthquake.
Most of the houses in the sparsely populated mountainous region are one or two stories, and there are no big buildings.
Nepal’s National Earthquake Monitoring and Research Center said the epicenter for both quakes, with initial magnitudes measuring 5.3 followed by 6.3, was Bajhang district in northwestern Nepal, close to the Indian border.
Tremors were also felt in the Indian capital, New Delhi.
