WASHINGTON (Reuters) A magnitude 7.4 earthquake struck southwestern Pakistan, the U.S. Geological Survey reported on Tuesday.
It said the quake was very shallow at a depth of 10 km (6.3 miles). It struck 55 km (34 miles) west of Dalbandin at 1:23 a.m. local time on Wednesday (2023 GMT on Tuesday).
There was no immediate report of damage from the area.
The Pacific Tsunami Center said the onshore quake had not triggered a tsunami in the Indian Ocean.
A major quake of this magnitude is capable of causing widespread and heavy damage.
On October 8, 2005, a 7.6 magnitude quake 95 km (60 miles) northeast of the Pakistani capital Islamabad killed over 70,000 people.

I see this story has already been posted. Please lock and pull! Thank you!
To bad it was not a moab style nuke taking out obl corpses
Maybe God is sending a message:
“Release Asia Bibi or the next one is a perfect 10!”
Too bad. A magnitude 10 would have been better.
It might have shaken some sense into the bastards.
A 7.2 in a region of structures with little or no reinforcement is more like a 9 in a developed area with earthquake damage mitigation in place.
This may well have leveled the structures in the area.

The bible says Israel will be protected...
My first thought when I heard this was I hoping it was not really an earthquake, but man made ground movement from a couple BIG bunker busters... then I woke up and remembered who our current president is.
Allah is not pleased.
I’ll say it: WE’RE BROKE.
May Allah provide for you, though
What the heck does THAT mean???
“Ill say it: WERE BROKE.
May Allah provide for you, though”
I don’t want a darned thing from Satan. Thats who Allah is.
Troll much ???
Look at the FReeper name...
I did, thats why I questioned it.
Pakistanis will ask us for $$$$, that’s why I replied to them in advance
Darling, I think that was directed at POK-e-stan, not you...
Half the U.S. are struggling just to keep their jobs and homes, few care about news from Pakistan, Outer Mongolia etc....
This particular report had not been posted - and you didn't use the real title from Yahoo...(often enough to have it pulled) but, I'm leaving it in place.
I thought I had gotten the correct title. I better look more closely.... Oh! Yahoo changed the title!!! I just checked my browser history.
