Historic Earthquakes

Koyna, India
1967 December 10 22:51 UTC (local time December 11 04:21)
Magnitude 6.3

Centered in the vicinity of Koynanagar, about 160 miles southeast of Bombay, this shock killed 177 people, injured over 2,000, and left 50,000 homeless. Property damage was limited to Koynanagar and several nearby villages. At Koynanagar, all of the dwellings were damaged, with 25 percent completely ruined. This is one of the classic examples of "reservoir-induced seismicity" -- earthquakes caused by the filling or changes in water level of large reservoirs.
