NEW DELHI: India's tsunami-hit Andaman and Nicobar Islands were rattled by 90 aftershocks in 24 hours, most of them of moderate intensity, the meteorological department said yesterday.
Four of the aftershocks were recorded yesterday morning, measuring between 5.0 and 5.5 on the Richter scale, R.S. Dutta Treyam, director of seismology at the New Delhi-based Indian Meteorological Department said.
There is no threat of tsunamis from these aftershocks, Treyam added.
The Indian Government said more than 812 people have died on the Andamans after the massive Dec 26 quake off Indonesia, which measured 9.0 on the Richter scale. AFP
