Around 11 PM on 20 Oct 2011, people of Surat were given a grim reminder of the events of the decade-old devastating 2001 Earthquake that shook the city and the state.

Although the tremor was very shortlived and mild, people were seen running out of their houses. In the area of Bhatar Road in Surat the tremors lasted only 5-6 seconds but were quite distinctly felt since beds and sofas that people were sitting on swayed a little.

From various other news reports it has been gathered that fortunately no casualties have occurred and a handful of people suffered injuries.
