Earthquake : Mild tremors felt in suburbs of Mumbai


First of all without going on with the topic, would like to inform all my readers that it’s basically a tremor. Not a big disastrous earthquake. So stop panicking & continue reading. It’s said that the earthquake which shook Fuji with a Richter Scale of 5.9 has come to Mumbai but with a much lower magnitude of 2.5 on the Richter scale.

Yet there are no confirmed reports from officials of the Fire department in Mumbai. But you can confirm it as residents of Mulund (Suburban area of Mumbai) including me have felt it around 1 AM – 1.20 AM.

I was watching a video on YouTube about link-building when I experienced a small tremor. Firstly, I didn’t realize it & took it casually. But when I turned to the HootSuite tab then I found out some reactions about an Earthquake in Mumbai. Found it on @rajupp’s timeline. So searched about it & many people from my area confirmed on Twitter & Facebook that, they too have experienced it.

You can refer the Richter Magnitude scale which gives you an idea occurrences, effects of earthquakes of different magnitudes. As said earlier the Richter scale of this earthquake was 2.5 (So it a Minor Earthquake) It’s written in the Richter Magnitude scale that it’s not felt, but it did feel.

Avoid panic. Pass on the news to others, but clearly state that it’s the one which is just felt but doesn’t cause damage. Leave the exaggeration part to the news channels!


  1. Really appreciate the fact that someone actually took the time out to clarify events like these.

  2. Earth quake in Mumbai. Its not even in the news channel mate. Very bad communication.

    1. It was a minor tremor. So news channels often don’t cover such things. Similar tremor happened two months ago too 😛 but even at that time they didn’t cover that news up 🙁

      These days they are behind getting TRP’s, nothing else.

  3. Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.

  5. I think low magnitude tremors sometime go unnoticed and Mumabi is much safer for these, however Delhi is more prone to such tremors as it is near to Himalayan.
