    Strong earthquake hits SW Pakistan


    An earthquake of magnitude 7.4 has hit south-western Pakistan, in a desert area bordering Iran and Afghanistan, the US Geological Survey says.

    The quake struck at a depth of just 10km (6.2 miles) at 2023 GMT on Tuesday, some 55 km (34 miles) west of Dalbandian in Pakistan.

    It was located several hundred kilometres from the Pakistani city of Quetta and the city of Zahedan, Iran.

    The Kashmir earthquake of October 2005 killed 73,000 people.

    if the depth was greater than damage would have been high even in India with possibilities of tsunami.

    7.3 quake hits Pakistan



    A magnitude 7.4 earthquake struck southwestern Pakistan, the U.S. Geological Survey reported has reported.

    It said the quake, initially reported as a magnitude 7.3, was very shallow at a depth of 10 km.

    It struck 55 km west of Dalbandin at 1:23 a.m. local time on Wednesday (2023 GMT on Tuesday).

    The Pacific Tsunami Center said the onshore quake had not triggered a tsunami in the Indian Ocean.

    A major quake of this magnitude is capable of causing widespread and heavy damage.

    It affected dilli as well. Paaj fell of his bed and shook DFI.
    Pray that all are safe as a result of the quake. But no one is safe when Paaj falls of his bed.
