    In the national capital region the quake was big enough for Metro services to be suspended and alarm bells to go off at housing societies.

    I made a note in my book on Nov. 5, 2015 that this region will be hit again before end of March 31, 2016 with a double epicenter one located near the last one of October 26, 2015 and second epicenter in the Gilgit Baltistan area resulting in major land slides near one of the highways. Although I am off by ten days and it is not simultaneous earth quake at two location either but I stand by my intuitive visual images. The plates are still moving and the next one could hit 9.2 on Richter scale. I can only pray and hope this does not happen but have no control over mother nature.

    some pakis were laughing when i told them earthquakes r a major threat to CPEC,
    judging by what happened to Karakorum highway in the past with even low intensity earthquakes, i wont place my bets on any CPEC related infra development in the baltistan etc region surviving without taking major damage now and then.

    pakis keeping laughing and the joke will be on your side

    Yes. It is not new, if you go back and look at the history of such quakes. If you are interested in this field I would like to suggest you to watch a video dealing with deepest place on earth. It is a documentary called The most Dangerous Deepest Place On Earth.
