Ditto in my office in ORR. People are casually working as if nothing has happened!!

We are near MG road and felt that shivering. Went out of the building and later a colleague called from Chennai and informed about the earthquake.

I felt it twice or thrice within 2 mins

Spot on. I was surprised too.
I could see only IBM (D block) evacuating the building. For others around, it was just an amusing sight.

The tremors were felt as far as delhi and as per USGS , magnitude was 8.7 , 32 KM below surface. Tsunami warning has been issued in as many as 28 countries and 6 meters waves are expected in coastal regions . Below is screen shot from USGS website

off lately, we are experiencing too many earth quakes. Is this the sign of some thing big coming our way .

From what I read here, a TSunami watch has been issued. Warning is different IIRC. A friend from Andamans is reporting all OK till 5 mins ago.

The plates that which are supporting us has become restless. This is a natural phenomenon that has been happening for ages.

Only because population of the world exploded, we see many casualty.

As per TOI , it will take at least 1 hours for waves to reach coastal ares if it has triggered a Tsunami , so it will be OK for time being. next 1-2 hours are crucial IMO.

Kindly check below article. Pls Advice your friend to evacuate to safe place. Better be safe than sorry later on.
