Recent reports have shown that earthquakes of lesser magnitude have been occurring in the Himalayan area of Uttarakhand and neighbouring Nepal.

It is estimated that due to the convergence of the Eurasian plate with the Indian plate, the plates are still getting displaced by 5cm/yr.

Nepal has experienced more than one earthquake in one week. 

1) On Tuesday evening, an earthquake of 3.5 and 4.9 magnitudes affected the region. 2) On Sunday, in Uttarakhand, an earthquake of 4.5 magnitude was felt in the area.
