The rumor panicked people in Assam. The news was viral when an astrologers, who also publishes almanac Kalpurush in Assamese claimed possibilities of three major earthquakes in coming days through a local television channel.
One of the earthquake was predicted to hit Assam around 4 P.M. today.

There are Six Panji in Oriya , Asali Khadiratna Panjeeka, Biraja Panji , Bhagyadaya Panji, Kohinoor Panji, Gaudiya Vishnava Panjika and Madala Panji. Madala Panji , this is the 1st Panjika in Indian regional Language started from 12th century . It is the main source and evidence of Orissa History . Pathani samanta Chandra Sekar ( 1835 to 1904) has revived the Oriya Panjika in scientific way and the Gaudiya Vishnava Panjika. Similarly, in Assam there is the Kalpurush Panjika (source wikipedia)

No any major seismological center has mentioned about any earthquake in Guhawati till now. The earthquake news became viral instantly through facebook and twitter in Assam. The reason for no record is a mystery (if really earthquake was felt). One may be the reason the intensity could be less (less moderate, below 4.0). Well, have to wait till Seismological center of India provides any data. You are kindly requested to share how you came to know about so called Guhawati earthquake!

Similar case happened in Swaziland/South Africa two days earlier. People reported of earthquake being felt across the country BUT no earthquakes were recorded by any seismological center (don't think similar case, still no any felt reports, click here if you felt tremor). One day after, Swaziland department of geological survey and mines confirmed earthquake of M 4.0. Click here to read that exclusive post
