On Friday, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority plans to conduct a simulated earthquake disaster exercise in all districts of the national capital. The fake drill occurs days after the nation’s capital and its surrounding areas experienced two consecutive days of earthquakes. On Wednesday, a magnitude 2.7 earthquake shook the nation’s capital.

The earthquake happened at 4:42 p.m. It was stated that the epicentre was in west Delhi and the depth was five kilometers.

The DDMA has asked citizens not to worry, as this is only a rehearsal to prepare for future situations of this nature. Tuesday night, a 6.8-magnitude earthquake rattled the city; its epicentre was in the Hindu Kush area of Afghanistan, and its depth was 156 kilometers.
