Mild Tremors Felt in Pune

Mild tremors shook Pune at 03:17 (+05:30 GMT) this afternoon. I felt the tremors in office for five-six seconds and then they stopped. For those few seconds the chair and the floor shook and it was over soon. People got up from their chairs, exchanged puzzled looks and wry smiles, and it was back to normal. I didn't think of it as a tremor until I read it on Rediff at 6 in the evening.

Rediff.com has confirmed it was a minor earthquake measuring 5.1 on the Richter scale. There are no reports of damage to life or property.

Initial reports said the earthquake, measuring 5.1 on the Richter Scale, was centered around Koyna in western Maharashtra. Konya is an area prone to seismic activity. Read more on Rediff and ToI.
