Mild tremors were felt in pockets of Chennai post noon today following a 5.1 magnitude earthquake in the Bay of Bengal. Residents in Besant Nagar, Thiruvanmiyur, Mylapore and Alwarpet say they felt slight tremors for a few seconds. These are areas closer to the sea.

Peppity Jasmin Sutha, a resident of Valmiki Nagar, closer to the beach along the East Coast Road told NDTV, “I was on my bed. I felt a force. I thought perhaps my daughter joined me on the bed, but there was none and then I realised it must have been a tremor.”

Many have taken to social media sharing their experience. However, there are no reports of any damage to life or property.
