Fresh tremor rocks Manipur

A 3.1 magnitude tremor rocked the north eastern state of Manipur a couple of hours after the one of 4.4 magnitude striking no less struck panic on Friday.

Originated in Churachandpur, the tremor was felt at 4.05 in the morning forcing the people to get up from the bed fearing the rerun of the massive one in 2015. There was no report of any loss of life and property.

Couple of hours back, Manipur experienced a 4.4 magnitude tremor originated in Ukhrul. The tremor was felt across the state at 10.04 in the evening forcing many people in the high rise buildings to come down to the open space.

“As I was watching television, suddenly I came to feel the jolt as the clock struck at 10.4 in the evening. Then I switched off the light and cams out of my house to the open space,” said Rasin Devi, a local resident of Imphal.
