While there was no panic among the residents in Banjara Hills and Jubilee Hills, the seismic stations at NGRI recorded the ultra-micro tremors between 0.3 and 0.5 ​on the Richter Scale.

The NGRI seismologists urged ​the ​public not to panic because on many occasions, it is hard to even detect micro-tremors.

Seismologists said that Hyderabad has received copious amounts of rains during this monsoon season, leading to rise in ground water levels.​

“When it rains heavily, water percolation imbalance in the pore pressure leads to such ultra micro-seismic events,” the seismologists at NGRI ​said​.
