New Delhi: A 3.3 magnitude earthquake struck Himachal Pradesh's Kullu in the wee hours on Thursday. No loss of lives or property have been reported so far. Some low-intensity tremors were also felt in close-by Mandi.
 
The MeT department is yet to issue an official statement of the incidence. 
 
The hill areas around Himachal Pradesh are highly vulnerable to earthquakes.
 
A mock exercise was conducted on November 24 in seven districts of the state -- Shimla, Kangra, Mandi Chamba, Solan, Kinnaur and Kullu -- to generate awareness and evaluate the response mechanism.
