The vibrations were experienced in entire North India too. In Eastern Rajasthan, the earth quake vibrations were felt for around 5-6 seconds near around 11.45 AM. Journal of Planning and Architecture reports that vibrations in in Eastern Rajasthan were in the direction of North-to- South. The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake hit Lamjung, Nepal, Saturday, 25 April, 2015. Witnesses say several buildings collapsed in the aftermath. As the time spends, we will get more clear news with tragedy and lives.

What to do and don't while at earth quake- 1. Be alert, within very less time you have to differentiate normal vibrations and earth quake leaded vibrations. 2. Place yourself at safe place and alarm your colleagues, people nearby you. If you cant run, and seek safe place immediately, cover your body under strong table/ chair. Protect your eyes from dust and damage. Do not open eyes, if you are getting your building demolished to protect them from dust. Stay away from heavy stairs/ week architectures/ walls. Protect your head from any direct/ indirect injuries. Stay away from false ceiling, heavy unbolted items, refrigerators, TV, on electric items/ circuits. You have to act fast in the event of such tragedy. Because everything happens within few time. If vibrations are not too strong, don't take adverse actions e.g. jump from buildings. If you have pets (dogs, cats) at your home, encourage them to come out to safe places, Don't tie them, so that they could defend. Dogs generally sense the earthquake before they occur around you, even before 5 to 10 minutes. Because earth quake flows in the form of a wave. Before intense wave struck to you, minor intense waves are identified by dogs. So they are good sensor for our help. Dogs begin to bark in such scenario, if you quite understand them, you will find that their barking is 'different'. Compare- How dogs bark when they love to their owner/ when something irritates/ attracts them/ on strangers/... If you are able to differentiate it, you can also judge at those moments too. It is like dogs are barking.. - to whom= no one! But not every time they bark, may be it depends how weak the final quake wave is/ whether dogs are not in group.
