Heavy but deep earthquake rattles Afghanistan

Mountains of Afghanistan

Hindukush mountains - Image via Wikipedia

Earthquake Report comment :
A heavy earthquake of Magnitude 6.3 hit the Hindukush mountains in Afghanistan. The earthquake occurred around midnight (23:51 or 11:51 PM).
The hypocenter was at a depth of approx. 200 km.
The greater epicenter area is located in the border area between Afghanistan, Pakistan and Tajikistan.
People in a very wide area must have felt the earthquake, but we expect a max. of IV Mercalli = light shaking.
Though a lot of NATO personnel must have felt the earthquake, almost nobody has left a FELT message at USGS or at our QuakeSOS iPhone app. so far  which confirms our estimate of the power.
GDACS has issued an ORANGE earthquake alert = moderate chance on damage or injuries, but Earthquake Report thinks that Orange is a little overstated.
Afghanistan villages are very vulnerable for shallow earthquakes, but the depth (if confirmed) would almost certainly wipe out the danger.

Most important Earthquake Data:

This earthquake list covers minor and major earthquakes in the world.
If a more detailed page is present, the earthquake line will be linked to the detailed page.
For your comfort, we will provide in most cases Google Satellite Map links to give you an idea where the earthquake struck, which terrain it happened and if villages or cities are located in the immediate vicinity. The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, also called GMT)
The page is regularly updated to add new earthquakes.
green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries
orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries
red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries
