NANDED: An earthquake of 4.4 magnitude hit Maharashtra's Yavatmal district and neighbouring areas on Sunday, officials said.

There was no report of any casualty or damage to property, they said.

The earthquake was experienced at 8.33 am, with its epicentre at Sadhunagar in Yavatmal district, Dr Vipin Itankar, the collector of neighbouring Nanded district, told PTI while quoting data of the National Centre for Seismology.

He said shocks were also felt in Nanded, located about 200 km from Yavatmal and 140 km from Latur.
