I was sitting in my house in the first floor at Vazhuthacaud. the bed I was sitting gradually began to shake slowly to a fast pace. There was a bottle of water in the bed as well which trembled and caused big noise. I asked father about it, he said he felt nothing. I called my colleagues in Technopark, they apparently got out of the office room...fearfully...

Yes. I too felt the tremor, in my house near pappanamcode. It is a matter of concern in the long run as it seems the frequency of the tremors are increasing.

roy said...

mild tremor felt in Trivandrum at 6:43 pm. Felt it inside the house at Pattom. My dog, a hefty Labrador, reacted first by jerking his head up and looking worried. I understand that it was only 3.2 mag. But this is happening here for the first time as far as I can remember.

Dr. Sumi said...

Haha, I did not feel it at all cos I was driving on one of the best roads in this city near Med. College, at that time. I meant to say my car was anyway quaking, thanks to the supreme road conditions.
