After Monday’s 6.7 mag earthquake💢 hit Manipur and other parts of the Northeast, SMSs📩 began to circulate in the area with fake timings of aftershocks💢, exacerbating the already panicky people who were also cold❄, being out in the open. State authorities were slow in reacting to the disaster which killed 7⃣ and injured🤕 70. CM G Gaikhangam gave no information on how the state disaster team was coordinating the NDRF⛑ from Guwahati. Vehicles went across a bridge🌉 even though it was severely cracked and closed to traffic, and there was no one to monitor the situation. Most of the injured🤕 were at the Regional Institute of Medical Sciences, lying on mats on the floor. Worst of all, the CM announced late in the evening that district level disaster response teams⛑ have been set up and that help lines are in place.
