People came out of their buildings and other establishments for safety but no casualty was reported. The intensity was more in districts bordering Nepal, said officials. Lucknow had also felt tremors on January 24 and March 21 this year and on November 9 and August 20 last year.

The earthquake, which lasted a few seconds, triggered panic with people rushing out of their homes/buildings. “We felt the tremors for a few seconds. I’m still feeling dizzy,” said Vineet Gupta, a trader in Aminabad.

The situation was similar outside a high-rise residential building near Shaheed Path in Vibhuti Khand. “I was sitting in my room and suddenly the glass of water and chair started shaking. We realised that it was an earthquake and immediately rushed outside the building,” a local resident said.
