An earthquake measuring 5.8 on the Richter struck Uttarakhand late on Monday night. The quake caused tremors that were felt across northern India. Two teams of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) have been rushed to Rudraprayag to conduct relief and rescue operations should the need arise.

A clear picture of the effect of the quake on the region is yet to emerge. The quake brought people out of their homes across Uttarakhand, as well as other cities across northern India.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) located the epicentre in the mountain state's Rudraprayag District. However, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) and United States Geological Service (USGS) have located the epicentre close to Pipalkoti.
