Earthquake hits Hyderabad and Vijayawada! No casualties yet

Under some unpredictable events, an earthquake hit the two capital cities of the Telugu states earlier this morning. Some places such as Boduppal, Secunderabad, Maredpally, Gachibowli, etc were the affected areas as per initial reports.

 
The epicenter of this earthquake taken at Nalgonda and this struck at the depth of 10km. The Richter scale shows 4.6-4.8 on the reading scale and the earthquake lasted for 7-10 seconds. Afterward, another earthquake hits at 27km from the Jaggayyapeta town which got situated near the Vijayawada, Krishna District. Recorded as 4.4 on the Richter scale and this range is comparatively minimal.
 
To sum the tension up that spread around, in 2017, after 122 micro-earthquakes of less than 1 magnitude registered at the six seismic stations located in and around Borabanda and a similar one off-earthquake in Jubilee Hills, experts at the National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI) say the swarm of micro-earthquakes is ‘dead in the rocky terrain’ of the Hyderabad city.'
