At 17:20:25 UTC, on Aug 1, 2017, according to a U.S. Geological Survey, a 5.1 bulk trembler occurred on a Western Indian – Antarctic Ridge. The upheaval happened in a Indian Ocean on a Southeast Indian Ridge and did not impact any circuitously land.

There were no reports of any disturbances felt from a earthquake. The bulk of a quake reached 5.1, that a U.S. Geological Survey defines as mostly being felt though can means smallest repairs to buildings and houses.

An trembler struck in a circuitously area, on Jul 25, 2016, with a bulk of 6.1 and a abyss of 15 kilometers. The trembler was described as “potentially tsunamigenic,” definition it could means a tsunami. However, that information has given been retracted.

The U.S Geological Survey after altered a rating of a upheaval to a bulk of 5.9, with a abyss of 10 kilometers.

No one felt or was spoiled by a possibly temblor.
