Hours ago, India’s National Center for Seismology (NCS) reported that a 4.6-magnitude earthquake struck 69 km west of Leh, Leh Ladakh, India at a depth of 77.6km.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the earthquake might be revised in the next few hours as seismologists review their data. Based on preliminary data it is believed that the earthquake did not cause any significant damage.

Several towns or cities that are close to the epicenter of the quake might have felt a weak shaking. These include Leh (pop. 37,500) located 69 km from the epicenter, Kargil (pop. 13,800) 73 km away, and Padam (pop. 25,000) 91 km away.
