Although no loss of life or property has been reported, the residents of Chamoli and adjoining states are in constant fear as they have been experiencing continuous after shocks of the Nepal Earthquake. The entire belt of the Himalayan region especially Uttarakhand falls under the category of highly seismic zone and a big magnitude tremor could have a catastrophic effect on the state.
