A 5.2 magnitude earthquake has rattled India's capital.

People ran into the streets of New Delhi and its suburbs Monday afternoon after tremors shook buildings for at least 10 seconds.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake was centered about 50 kilometers west-northwest of New Delhi at a depth of 19 kilometers.

Monday's tremors came just weeks after thousands of people took part in New Delhi's largest earthquake drill aimed at improving disaster preparedness.

There have no reports of casualties or serious damage.
