A mild earthquake struck parts of Thane district, on 1 July 2010 at 11:47 AM local time. It had a magnitude of M?=2.5 and was felt in several parts of the Thane-Navi Mumbai region.

If you felt this earthquake, please let us know!

The earthquake was centred
1 kms SW of Kanheri Caves (Maharashtra), India,
2.7 kms E of Lokhandwala Complex, Kandivili (E), Mumbai (Maharashtra), India,
5.2 kms NW of Mulund (W), Mumbai, (Maharashtra), India,
6 kms W of Thane city (Maharashtra), India,
6.8 kms NNW of Bhandup (W), Mumbai, (Maharashtra), India,

17.3 kms NW of Vashi (Maharashtra), India,

24.3 kms NW of Belapur (Maharashtra), India,

20 kms SW of Bhiwandi (Maharashtra), India,

31.8 kms NNE of Nariman Point, Mumbai (Maharashtra), India.

Tremors were felt by many people in Bhandup and Mulund in suburban Mumbai as well as at Bhivandi, Diva Junction, Dombivili, Ghansoli, Ghodbundar Road, Kalva, Mumbra and Thane city in Thane district. At Ghansoli, tremors were felt indoors by several persons, hanging objects were observed to shake and some light furniture shifted. At Diva Junction, a thunderous sound was heard and ceiling fans were seen shaking. In Thane, people felt a "strong thud" and mistook it for maintenance work being carried out on their building. Separate reports from Diva Junction and Thane city report two distinct tremors within a span of a few minutes.

There were no reports of tremors from any other parts of Mumbai although the IMD epicentre is located close to the suburbs of Borivali, Kandivali and Malad. Based on information that the earthquake was felt in many towns to the east of this location it is very likely the epicentral location was further to the north-east or east of its present location. The epicentral co-ordinates provided on this page for this earthquake are preliminary in nature and will be updated at a future date. The strongest earthquake in this immediate region was a Mw=3.7 event in June 2005 centred near Ambarnath that was felt throughout the Mumbai-Thane region.
