Classic timing on that!!

But seriously, did anyone else feel a shakin'-floor in India (or in Pune)?

Earthquake? Are you sure?
Perhaps you got bowled over by the excitement of this forum, and felt that was an earthquake

I definitely felt it, and so did my cousin at the other end of Pune. Around 12 30, give or take.

I didn't see it on the morning papers (TOI). Is anything being reported in other papers / news channels?

Guys, I felt it. I was watching TV with my wife and suddenly by 12:35 pm or so, there were three big jolts. I thought that wifey was shaking the sofa to scare me.

We realized that it was an earth quake and ran to our balcony to see if anyone else from the building noticed. But there were no one outside. Everyone else were fast asleep, I guess!

Yep! definitely felt it. Was watching a Horror Movie and suddenly the bed shakes like hell for 3 seconds. As I'm alone nowadays, my first thought was some ghost has come to haunt me!


Went to the windows to see if anyone is running out but could find no one. Didn't dare ask anyone in the office today morning till I read the newsclip on timesofindia.com.
