Bengaluru: After the series of tremors that were felt in the Vijayapura district, reports said a team of geologists and scientists will visit the district on Friday to study the cause of the tremors.

Another team of experts and scientists from premier institutes of the geology of the country will visit Kalaburgi on November 8 and 9 to analyse the situation, reported news agency IANS.

Scientists from the National Centre for Seismology, National Geophysical Research Institute, National Institute of Rock Mechanics, Geological Survey of India, Scientific and Industrial Research Partishat, state Mining and geology department and the KSNDMC will visit Gadikeshwara village on Nov 8 for two days.

Vijayapura district was rocked by low-intensity earthquakes tremors seven times a month. The latest one was recorded on  Thursday evening at 6.21 p.m., which measured 3.2 on the Richter scale, according to the National Centre for Seismology.

Meanwhile, the neighbouring Kalaburgi district was also hit by frequent quakes. Incessant rains in the state have worsened the situation.

So far, there have been no reports of loss of life. But the frequent quakes have created an atmosphere of fear and panic. Most people from the Gadikeshwara village in Chincholi taluk have already migrated to other places fearing for their lives.

As per an IANS report, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has already conveyed an emergency meeting with the officers of Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre (KSNDMC).

The Chief Minister has also directed the officers to submit a report on the repeated earthquakes in the two districts of Kalaburgi and Vijayapura. He has directed the officials to establish relief centres and provide compensation for the damages caused to houses by the tremors, IANS said.

Deputy Commissioner Vasireddi Vijaya Jyothsna of Kalaburgi district has stated that she would stay in Gadikeshwara to instil confidence among people.
