A massive earthquake of 6.3 magnitude hit Nepal on Wednesday (6 November) morning, killing at least 6 people and injuring 5. At 2:00AM its tremors were felt in India's capital city, Delhi and its surrounding areas - with no casualties or major hindrances.

According to the National Center for Seismology, the depth of the earthquake was about 10 km below the earth surface.


To no one's surprise, #earthquake and #earthquakeindelhi started trending on social media, shortly after the city felt severe tremors. Desi Twitter reacted to the incident like they would, to anything else - with memes and jokes.

While some used comedy to express concern at the state of the city after hazardous air pollution and now, an earthquake, other users joked about checking Twitter to verify the quake instead of evacuating their residences.
