Delhi has introduced an all-encompassing heat action plan aimed at shielding vulnerable communities during peak summer heatwaves. Among the measures outlined are adjustments to school schedules, reduction of non-essential water usage, continuous power supply to healthcare facilities, and daily assessments of at-risk areas.

The Delhi government’s draft disaster management plan warns that should a powerful earthquake strike the national capital, it would wreck more devastation than a nuclear bomb explosion. Six minor earthquakes in 10 days sometimes is the precursor to a large one.
