This seismic activity follows closely on the heels of a 6.2 magnitude earthquake that rocked Colombo, Sri Lanka, just a day earlier on November 14, 2023, at 12:31 PM local time. The NCS reported, “Earthquake of Magnitude: 6.2, Occurred on 14-11-2023, 12:31:10 IST, Lat: -2.96 & Long: 86.54, Depth: 10 Km, Location: 1326 km SE of Colombo, Sri Lanka.”

Preceding these events, on Monday, an earthquake with a magnitude of 4.9 struck the border region between South Sudan and Uganda, as documented by the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC).

Later that same day, Tajikistan experienced multiple tremors with a magnitude of 4.9. The NCS posted on social media platform X, “Earthquake of Magnitude: 4.9, Occurred on 13-11-2023, 17:46:37 IST, Lat: 38.73 & Long: 72.49, Depth: 194 Km, Location: Tajikistan.”

It is noteworthy that Nepal also encountered seismic activity, registering a 5.6 magnitude earthquake that reverberated through the Delhi-National Capital Region (NCR). This earthquake came on the heels of a devastating 6.4 magnitude quake in Nepal a few days earlier, resulting in 153 fatalities and 160 injuries—a tragic incident marking the deadliest earthquake since 2015.
