Earthquake in Lahore

We just experienced a strong earthquake in Lahore and Islamabad¬† 10 minutes ago (1:30AM approx.) that is being reported to have a 5.9 magnitude. The news was almost instantaneous on twitter though we are still waiting for the ‘old media’ to provide more information. We hope everyone is safe and sound (asleep).

    The epicentre was in the Hindukush range while strong tremors were felt all across Northern and Central parts of the country including Gilgit, Chitral, Peshawar, Parachinar, Charsadda, Muzaffarabad, Murree, Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Lahore.

    Let’s pray everyone has remained safe… Amen!
