The earthquake occurred at 139km north-northeast of Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh at around 1.12 am.

No casualties or damage to property were reported due to the earthquake.

"Earthquake of Magnitude: 5.2, Occurred on 20-08-2022, 01:12:47 IST, Lat: 28.07 & Long: 81.25, Depth: 82 Km, Location: 139km NNE of Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India," National Center for Seismology tweeted.

A day ago, mild tremors were reported in the Pithoragarh area of Uttarakhand which was hit by an earthquake of 3.6 magnitudes on the Richter Scale. The earthquake occurred at 12:55 pm.

Himachal Pradesh's Kinnaur district was hit by an earthquake of magnitude 3.1 on Friday.

Earthquakes with a magnitude of about 2.0 or less are usually called microearthquakes; they are not commonly felt by people. Earthquakes between 3.0 to 3.9 are termed 'minor' and do not have the intensity to cause any damage. Shocks in the range of 4.0 to 4.9 are called 'light earthquakes', whereas those between 5 to 6 magnitudes can cause moderate damage in populated areas. Earthquakes above 7 cause severe destruction and loss of life over large areas.
