New Delhi: Tremors were felt in several parts of North India as a medium-intensity earthquake measuring 5.5 on the Richter Scale hit Uttarakhand's Rudraprayag district today, the India Meteorological Department said.

According to the IMD's National Seismological Centre, the quake occurred at 8:49 pm.

The epicentre of the quake was at a depth of 30 km, according to Vikram Singh, the   director of MeT office in Dehardun.

There were no reports of loss of property or life.

People in several districts of Uttarakhand ran out of their homes in panic, the official said Uttarakhand, a part of the Himalayan region, falls under a high seismic zone.

Tremors were felt in Delhi, Haryana, Chandigarh and parts of Punjab.    

An official in the  Uttarakhand disaster management division said there were no reports of death, injury and even damage to structures. "Reports so far, from all across the district, indicate nothing adverse. It was a mild event," said police-constable Parveen. He is also part of the State's disaster management set-up.
