Hey guys, just read that a major earthquake hit pakistan few hours ago. Its effects were felt in Dubai and Delhi as well. 


Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) -- An earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2 struck Wednesday morning in a remote area of southwestern Pakistan, but initial reports revealed no major damage.

The earthquake occurred at 1:23 a.m. (3:23 p.m. Tuesday ET) at a depth of 84 kilometers (52 miles), the U.S. Geological Survey said. It was centered 45 kilometers (30 miles) west of Dalbandin, and 1,035 kilometers (640 miles) west-southwest of Islamabad, the USGS said on its website.

Arif Mahmood, director of the Pakistan Meteorological Department, put the epicenter at 320 kilometers (about 200 miles) southwest of Quetta near Kharan, Balochistan, and said it had been felt in Punjab, Sindh, and Balochistan provinces in Pakistan, as well as parts of Iran and India.

Mahmood predicted major aftershocks. "Earthquakes with such magnitudes in the past have brought on aftershocks," he told CNN from Islamabad.

I know we have many pakistani friends on here, hoping and praying for everyone's safety and that there are no aftershocks

Seems like not  much damage as it occured about 84 km below the surface.
It is the floods that are worrisome and we expect more and more of these due to global warming. Australia is badly hit too and so was Brazil and Pakistan.
Expecting something to happen even in California.
