An earthquake of magnitude 4.0 on the Richter scale hit the Diglipur area of Andaman and Nicobar Islands on Wednesday morning.
The National Center for Seismology (NCS) informed that the earthquake took place at a depth of 80 kilometres and 90 kilometres South-South-East of Diglipur.
"Earthquake of Magnitude: 4.0, Occurred on 27-10-2021, 04:56:37 IST, Lat: 12.54 and Long: 93.36, Depth: 80 Km, Location: 90 km SSE of Diglipur, Andaman and Nicobar Island, India," tweeted NCS.
More details are awaited.
Just to give you an indication of where this is. You'll note the island chain starting at the Andaman-Nicobar Island and ending in Sumatra (where the Earthquake that caused the 2004 Tsunami that wreaked havoc on this area originated)
Obviously a 4.0 earthquake will not cause a tsunami, but if this is an pre-shock, it might indicate that one may be coming in the next few months or years.

The only thing I know is that it's Trump's fault.
I am keeping an eye on that one, too.
Scary times we live in.
Trump’s fault. Is it a strike slip or a reverse thrust fault?
Size 4? Gimme a break. We get those regularly out here in CaCaLand. Hard to tell the difference between that and a large truck taking a detour along the road out front.
I say this ‘cause a shake that mild might not be a pre-shock of anything.
Be careful. It’s quite addictive.
