A mere five days prior, the town of Manuguru felt the earth’s wrath. On that ill-fated Saturday evening of August 19, a minor quake rattled the Manuguru mandal, setting the stage for the tragedy that followed. Recollections of terrified residents flooded in, recounting the eerie sounds accompanying the trembling ground – a haunting symphony of shifting household items. The quake’s vicious grasp reached far and wide, impacting areas like Manuguru, Pujarinagar, Rajpet, Kothakondapuram, Sundarayyanagar, and Adarshnagar.

Normally, the local Singareni coal mines would release their thunderous blasts between three and 3.30 in the afternoon. Yet, on this day, darkness had already settled when the earth convulsed after 4 pm, forcing frightened souls to abandon the shelter of their homes.
