5.7 magnitude earthquake in Kashmir
Sonam Lotus, the director of the local weather office, told IANS: "An earthquake measuring 5.7 on the Richter scale hit Srinagar and other parts of the valley at 3.19 p.m.
"The quake was of moderate intensity with its epicentre in the Hindukush region at latitude 36.5 degrees north and longitude 17.9 degrees east," she said.
The tremors were felt by residents of Srinagar, but no loss of life or property has been reported so far.
