Default Tremors in Mumbai and parts of Maharashtra

There were tremors experienced about 1.75 hrs back [1515] in Mumbai and parts of Maharashtra. You could easily feel the tremors. Well the "feeling" was awesome, but it is a dangerous event and an event that could kill a huge number of people. Just added poll to know how many of us had felt the tremors.

I was home for lunch and at 3:15 the bloody table started shaking, this is the first time I have felt tremors from a quake but it was for only probably 4-5secs.

Satyam.
