Reservoir linked to deadly quake in India – Killari reservoir could have induced Latur earthquake

(April 9, 1994) The earthquake that killed 10,000 people in India last September struck within 15 kilometers of a reservoir filled just 2 years earlier. That proximity in time and space seems more than coincidental to two U.S. seismologists who propose that filling the reservoir may have set off the quake.
