KALABURAGI: The villagers of Gadikeshwara were coming to terms after being rattled by frequent tremors recently, only to experience the tremors again on Saturday. The villagers heard a loud sound at around 11.20 AM on Saturday, followed by tremors. It may be recalled here that a tremor measuring 4.1 magnitude in the Richter Scale was recorded at Gadikeshwara at 9.55 PM on Monday.
Incharge Tahasildar of Chincholi taluk Anjum Tabsam told Express over phone that “The revenue staff camping in Gadikeshwara informed about sound and shake in the earth for about two seconds. There is no record of vibration in the Richter Scale.”

Two big sheds, one for men and another for women, have been erected to facilitate the villagers to sleep without any fear. Apart from this food is being provided two times a day in the Kalaji Kendra.
