Maharashtra: Mysterious underground sounds have been heard in the eastern part of the city of Latur in Maharashtra, causing residents to panic, but no seismic activity has been reported, officials said.
On Wednesday morning, between 10.30 and 10.45 a.m., the sounds near Vivekanand Chowk sparked fears of an earthquake.
Some people alerted the local administration, following which the district disaster management department took information from the earthquake measuring centres in Latur city, as well as Aurad Shahajni and Ashiv in the district, but there was “no report of any seismic activity,” an official said.
