Three earthquakes occurred within a span of 20 days in Nellore district, leaving cracked and fallen walls and utensils all over the floor. The panic-stricken people are leaving their homes and fleeing to safer places. The earthquakes seem to be occurring due to mining activity at Palmuru and surrounding areas of neighbouring Prakasam district. The contractors are using bombs to blast the rocks and the result is earthquakes. If they continue, there might be a major earthquake in the area soon, bringing destruction, experts said.
