An earthquake measuring 3.9 on the Richter Scale shook Maharashtra early Monday, barely 12 hours after a powerful quake jolted northern and eastern India, an official said.

The tremors were recorded around 6.20 a.m., but the intensity or its epicentre have not yet been confirmed, the official from the Seismological Monitoring Centre here said.

So far there is no information on loss of life or property from anywhere.

Among the areas which were shaken up Monday include Latur, Osmanabad and Solapur districts.

Maharashtra had been hit by a mega-quake Sep 30, 1993.
