by IANS | Updated Jun 18, 2020
According to an official of the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the tremor hit eastern Mizoram's Champhai area, adjoining Myanmar, at 7.29 pm.
The quake, which lasted a few seconds, was at 80 km depth.
Seismologists consider India's mountainous northeast region as the sixth major earthquake-prone belt in the world.
The northeast has seen some of the biggest quakes in history. In 1897, a Shillong-epicentred quake measured 8.2 on the Richter scale, while in 1950, an earthquake in Assam measuring 8.7 on the Richter Scale forced the Brahmaputra river to change its course.
