Quake Report : 03Oct2013 - Sikkim

We felt the quake in Kalimpong and it jolted people in Gangtok even harder reviving painful memories of the 18Sep2011 (6.8R) earthquake.
Though no casualties or damage is known so far, what is scary about this quake is how close it was epicentred to heavily populated areas, which makes me ponder about the level of our preparedness to deal with disasters and just how long will our luck last?
