The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre reported a magnitude 5.2 earthquake in Nepal on Monday, followed by a slightly weaker tremor that wounded three individuals, mere days after 153 people perished in the country’s worst quake since 2015. The November 5 earthquake, which was felt as far aside as Kathmandu and Delhi, also caused landslides and wrecked houses, roads, and infrastructure.

The earthquake was the most mighty to hit Nepal since the catastrophic 2015 quakes, which killed nearly 9,000 people and damaged or destroyed over 500,000 structures. However, scientists warn that Sunday’s quake may not have released all of the region’s pent-up stress and that a larger and more destructive earthquake may be on the way.

A report from Dr. Amod Dixit, a seismologist and executive director of the National Society for Earthquake Technology-Nepal (NSET), the quake on Sunday occurred in Nepal’s central belt, which is classified as a “actively energy releasing sector” with a history of producing large earthquakes. The quake, according to him, was caused by the collision of the Indian and Eurasian tectonic plates, which are constantly pushing against each other and causing strain in the crust.
