Vibrations of Indonesian quake felt in Andhra: NGRI
Hyderabad: The National Geophysical
Research Institute (NGRI) on Wednesday said that no earthquake
occurred in Andhra Pradesh following the Indonesian temblor,
even as tremors are reportedly felt in the coastal districts
of the state.
"No quake, in fact, occurred in Andhra Pradesh. The
vibrations of the massive quake in Indonesia were only felt in
Andhra Pradesh," a scientist at the city-based National
Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI) said.
According to reports trickling in from Visakhapatnam,
panic-stricken people in the coastal districts of
Visakhapatnam, Vizianagaram and Srikakulam rushed out of their
homes as soon as they felt the tremors.
In Vijayawada too residents came out of their homes
and ran for safety.
"People of Andhra Pradesh need not worry about the
earthquake. But they should worry about tsunami. A quake has
probably generated a tsunami. It is better about to be away
from the coast for at least a few hours," the scientist added.
