Earthquakes In Maharashtra : Earthquakes in Maharashtra are showing major alignment along the west coast and Western Ghats region. Seismic activity can be seen near Ratnagiri, along the western coast, Koyna Nagar, Batas and Surry areas of Thane district. The north-south trend further continues deep inside Gujarat. The striking characteristic of this narrow region is its alignment with the hot spring belt. The off-coast activities are associated with submerged faults along the west coast of Maharashtra. In north Maharashtra, the seismic activities near Dhule, Akola, Jalgaon and Amravati could be due to movements on the faults present in the area associated with the complex system of Narmada, Tapi and Purna. In north-east corner of Maharashtra, the earthquake activities in Nagpur and Bhandara districts may be associated with Deolapar thrust or sheared and faulted zones of Ramtek and Sako
