Earthquake in Dharamsala?

It seems I slept through a small earthquake this morning. It can't have been much and doesn't seem to have made the news anywhere. But then today, in the world, there were at least 90 earthquakes (measuring more than 1.5 on the Richter scale), with many occurring in the US. In the past week 709 quakes were reported and 2,800 in the past month.

In 1905 in Dharamsala, India's worse modern earthquake occurred, killing around 20,000 people. It measured 7.8 and was felt as far away as in Delhi. It prompted the British to decamp from here and move its administration to Shimla, over 200km away in the east of the state.
