A strong earthquake struck northeast Afghanistan on Tuesday, with tremors felt in cities in Pakistan and India.

Pakistan’s Meteorological Department said the earthquake measured at magnitude 6.8, with the epicenter being in the Hindu Kush mountain range near the remote northern Afghan province of Badakhshan at a depth of 117 miles (187.6 km).

It was later downgraded by USGS to a 6.5-magnitude earthquake.

Thanksfully, the earthquake was so deep. There are no reports of damage or casualties yet. Just very strong shaking…

Initial reports said the tremor was felt in Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul. Additionally, strong tremors were felt in the Pakistani capital of Islamabad.

Sustained shaking could be felt, and people were seen evacuating their homes as the trees shook. Eyewitnesses in Lahore told CNN the tremors were also felt there.

Eyewitnesses also felt tremors in New Delhi and in Srinagar – the largest city in Indian-administered Kashmir – where an eyewitness told CNN that he could see his house shaking, as neighbors evacuated their homes.
