A resident of Tarapur tells us that he was having his dinner when all of a sudden the electricity went off. “As we reached out for emergency lights, we realised that the table, bed and all were shaking. Immediately we rushed down to the ground floor. By the time we reached from the first floor, it was all back to normal.”
