A seismic tremor measuring 7.2 extent struck 109 km west of Murghob in Tajikistan on Monday (Dec 7), shaking structures as far away as the Indian capital of New Delhi and in Pakistan, the US Geological Survey and witnesses said.
A representative for Tajikistan’s Emergencies Committee said it had no data so far on any losses or harm from the shudder.
The shake did not influence Russian army installations in Tajikistan, RIA news organization reported, refering to Russia’s guard service.
As indicated by the USGS, the epicenter was situated in a remote zone around 345 km east of the capital Dushanbe.
A Dushanbe occupant told Reuters by phone the shake had been felt in the capital, yet portrayed it as moderate.
The tremor was likewise felt in the capital of neighboring Kyrgyzstan toward the north, northern parts of Afghanistan toward the south and in addition close-by Pakistan.
“I felt the windows moving and that just happens when there’s a quake. The room was swinging,” said Sara Seerat, a legal advisor in Pakistan’s capital Islamabad, where laborers deliberately emptied office structures.
Indian TV demonstrated occupants in Delhi and Srinagar hurrying into the avenues.
