Bengaluru, Apr 18: At around 7.30 am on Tuesday April 18, people living in several parts of the city and nearby districts like Mandya, Ramanagara, Chamarajanagar and Tumakuru districts experienced mild tremors.

In some places, the tremors were reportedly more intense. Affected people said that the experience lasted for a few seconds.

There are reports about walls of some houses in Nelamangala and nearby areas developing cracks. Malavalli in Mandya district and Channapatna in the outskirts of the city also felt the tremors. However, there were no reports about them in Mysuru district, which is located close to Mandya and Chamarajanagar districts.

Srinagar, Hanumanth Nagar and Yalahanka in the city were some of the areas where the people could clearly feel the tremors.

People who experienced the tremors rushed out of their houses because of the fear that something ominous was happening. However, they soon realized later that it must be mild earthquake.
