Earthquake in Afghanistan: The powerful tremors from the earthquake that hit Afghanistan on Wednesday have been estimated to have killed about 250 people. According to Afghanistan’s official news agency, an earthquake that hit the Paktika province in the country’s east has killed at least 255 people. On Wednesday, the government-run Bakhtar news agency announced the dead toll and stated helicopter rescue teams were on the way. The province of Paktika experienced an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.
Earthquake caused destruction
Local authorities were quoted by the BBC as suggesting that the death toll could reach over 250 while more than 150 people were injured. About 44 kilometres (27 miles) separated the earthquake’s epicentre from Khost, a city in southern Afghanistan. The European Mediterranean Seismological Center, which was quoted by Reuters, claimed that Pakistan and India, as well as Pakistan, may feel the earthquakes up to 500 kilometres distant.
From Kabul, the city of Afghanistan, to Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, witnesses reported feeling tremors, according to the centre. “Unfortunately, hundreds of people across the country were killed and injured yesterday night due to a severe earthquake that struck four districts of Paktika province,” said government spokesperson Bilal Karimi in a tweet. Numerous houses also sustained damage. He declared that we are pleading with the humanitarian organisations to deploy a team to the rescue efforts of the victims right away.
Afghanistan to Pakistan financial flow
The epicentre of the earthquake was 44 kilometres south-west of Khost in Afghanistan, at a depth of 50.8 kilometres, according to the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD). At 1:54 a.m. local time, the earthquake happened late at night.
There were tremors reported in Peshawar, Islamabad, Lahore, and other regions of the provinces of Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. There are no reports of any injuries or property damage as a result of this. There are frequent earthquakes in Pakistan because of its location in an earthquake-prone region. It had been a week since the last earthquake. A 5.2 magnitude earthquake was felt across the nation on June 17. More than 74,000 people were murdered in the nation in a devastating earthquake in 2005.
