The epicentre was at a depth of 5 kilometres in the northeast of Chamba district, he said, adding that mild tremors were also felt in the adjoining areas. No loss of life or property was reported. Most parts of Himachal Pradesh, including Chamba, fall in the high seismic sensitive zone and mild quakes are a regular feature in the region.
