Earthquake Research Team Arrives in Jajarkot: In-Depth Study of Recent Earthquake Unveiled

In the wake of the recent earthquake that rattled the region, a dedicated team from the National Earthquake Monitoring and Research Center, based in Lainchaur, has swiftly mobilized to Jajarkot. Led by the esteemed senior seismologist, Dr. Lokvijaya Adhikari, the team’s mission is to conduct comprehensive research and analysis of the earthquake that struck on Friday night.

In-Depth Investigation:

The team, in collaboration with the Department of Mines and Geology under the guidance of Director General Ram Prasad Ghimire, will conduct a thorough examination. Their focus includes investigating the earthquake’s depth, the directional impact of the damage, and assessing the structures affected by this seismic event.

Not an Aftershock:

Clarifying misconceptions, senior seismologist Dr. Adhikari asserted that the earthquake in Jajarkot was not an aftershock of the Bajhang earthquake. This seismic activity was an entirely new earthquake. The region has experienced four significant aftershocks following the initial earthquake on Friday night. These aftershocks included a magnitude 4.5 at 12:08 p.m., a 4.2 at 12:29 p.m., a 4.3 at 12:35 p.m., and another 4.2 at 3:40 p.m. on the following Saturday afternoon.

Impact and Response:

The recent earthquake, measuring 6.4 on the Richter scale, has had significant repercussions. With the unfortunate loss of 157 lives in Jajarkot and Rukum Paschim, and over 200 people sustaining injuries, the region is grappling with the aftermath of this seismic event.

As the team of experts conducts their research and analysis, it is crucial to keep the public informed about the ongoing developments and provide accurate insights into the situation. This information is essential for both the local Nepali community and international readers interested in understanding the seismic activity in the region.
