Even Earthquakes are on the rise now a days. The Earthquakes have also become more frequent and the reason is Global Warming and Climate Change. The scientific reason behind rising instances of earthquakes is when the snow and glaciers atop the mountains melt rapidly, at that instance; the mountain’s weight distribution changes. This change causes the tectonic plates beneath the earth’s surface to collide more frequently and with more force which results in frequent and more deadlier earthquakes. In India, the states in which Himalaya Mountain Range is present, they are very prone to earthquakes. Most of these states come in Seismic Zone 4 and 5 which means that an earthquake of 7 or more on richter scale can destroy the infrastructure of whole cities which will result in huge loss of lives. Jammu Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and the whole of North East India come in Seismic Zone 5. Whereas Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Sikkim come in Seismic Zone 4.
