Mild tremors triggers panic in Eastern India

January 26, 2012HYDERABAD, IndiaMild tremors in parts of Andhra Pradesh on Thursday triggered panic among people. There was no loss of life or damage to property. People ran out of their houses in several parts of Krishna and Guntur districts in north coastal Andhra and Khammam district in Telangana region as the earth vibrated for few seconds. People in some areas said they experienced tremors at least five times between 12.25pm and 12.30pm. Vessels and other house-hold items trembled and even fell on the ground, people said. Fearing another earthquake, people were reluctant to return home and preferred to stay in open grounds. Scientists at the National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI) here described the tremors as seismic vibrations. The tremors were not recorded at the observatory. A scientist said only tremors of an intensity of above 2.8 on the Richter scale get recorded. The NGRI scientists said there was no need for panic as such vibrations are a common occurrence. –Times of India
