No loss of life or property was, however, reported from anywhere.
Although the earthquake lasted for only a few seconds, it triggered panic at many places, especially Dehradun -- the state capital of Uttarakhand -- and people rushed out of their houses.
The India Meteorological Department (IMD) official said the epicentre of the earth quake was 121 km away from Dehradun, in Rudraprayag, and at a depth of 30 km.
This is the second earthquake in Uttarakhand in the past 24 hours. On Tuesday, a 3.3 magnitude quake was reported in the state.
