A mysterious loud sound was heard in Karnataka’s Shivamogga district on Thursday night time, adopted by what a lot of Twitter claimed to be tremors.
The sound was heard round 10:20 pm in Shivamogga, and led to experiences of tremors even from close by Chikkamagaluru district.
It’s presently unclear what triggered the loud sound, with many on Twitter questioning if it was a sonic increase or an earthquake.
Neither the Nationwide Centre for Seismology or United States Geological Survey (USGS) web sites present any file of an earthquake within the area. A Met officer too instructed reporters that thus far no earthquake has been recorded.
Many posted pictures of shattered glasses and minor injury to buildings and other people on the streets following the mysterious sound.
