    A magnitude 6.1 earthquake struck the mountainous nation of Bhutan on the afternoon of September 21, 2009. According to reports from AFP, at least 10 people died, and some houses and monasteries near the epicenter were damaged. Shaking from the earthquake was felt throughout Bhutan and in Tibet and northeastern India.

    Bhutan is located in the Himalayan Mountains, along the boundary between the Indian and Eurasian tectonic plates. The Indian plate is moving northwards relative to the Eurasian plate, pushing the Himalayas upwards as the plates collide. As a result, large earthquakes are frequent in the area. A magnitude 8.5 earthquake—the largest ever recorded on land—occurred nearby in the Indian state of Assam in 1950.

    Death toll mounts to 12 in Bhutan earthquake
    Thousands of people in Bhutan’s eastern dzongkhags spent the night out in the open after a powerful earthquake, which hit on Monday (September 21) afternoon, damaged homes, government offices, historical monuments, blocked roads and reportedly killed at least 12 people.

    The first tremor of the earthquake measuring 6.3 on the Richter scale, with its epicentre in Mongar dzongkhag, was felt around 2:55pm and “made the surrounding hills look like they were throwing up dust”, according to Sangay Tenzin, who was driving along the Trashigang-Riju road. “The road was suddenly filled with boulders and mud,” he said.

    Five people were killed in Mongar. A 31-year-old woman and her 2-year-old son were killed after their traditional wood and mud house collapsed in Narang gewog, the worst hit area in Mongar. Two women, aged 49 and 80, were also killed in Narang. It was reported that a 42-year-old woman, a road worker, was found buried under debris in Kurichhu, Mongar. Six students and one farmer were also injured.

    In Trashigang’s Yangneer gewog, two men in their 60s were killed after their house collapsed. A 7-year-old boy was also found dead in his home in Jomtshang village, Udzorong. Five people, including two children, were injured. In an area seven kilometres away from Samdrupjongkhar town, four Dantak labourers, three women and one man, clearing the road after the first tremor, were killed by falling boulders.

    Seven more tremors were felt in Trashigang after the quake hit, with the first few tremors occurring every half an hour. In Mongar, people said they felt three more tremors. The aftershocks lent credence to rumours across the country that another earthquake with a higher magnitude would hit later at night.

    “We all ran out in panic and our neighbours were shouting: ‘Get out of the house! Get out of the house’ when the earthquake hit,” said a 35-year-old businesswoman in Drametse, Mongar. “We haven’t been able to step inside the house since most of our homes have been damaged.”

    A farmer in Narang gewog in Mongar, one of the worst hit areas, said that they could still feel the tremor, which was as strong as the initial earthquake. “Everyone is in shock,” said Kesang. “Most houses in the lhakhang area have collapsed.”

    Many monuments, monasteries, chortens, houses and schools in eastern Bhutan have been damaged.

    Almost 50 houses and seven chortens have been damaged in Yangneer gewog, according to Yangneer gup. In Narang gewog alone, more than 30 houses have been damaged.

    In the other gewogs of Trashigang and Mongar, more than 100 houses, 19 chortens and 7 lhakhangs have been destroyed as of yesterday. Buildings of four schools in Mongar were also damaged by the earthquake.

    “The students were practising dance in the one of the school buildings when the ceiling fell,” said a civil servant, who was present in Woongchilo community school in Wamrong. “All the students rushed out of the room and no one was hurt.”

    No damages were reported in the central, western and southern region of Bhutan. Thimphu residents came to know about the earthquake through relatives calling them from the eastern dzongkhags.

    A total of 30 earthquakes have been recorded in Bhutan between 1937 to 1998. Records with the department of geology and mines indicate that the earthquake on January 21, 1941 was the most powerful, measuring 6.75 on the Richter scale.

    People in Trashigang, who had gathered at the school football ground to spend the night and have lit a bonfire for warmth, said they felt another tremor at 9pm.
