5.9 magnitude earthquake in Afghanistan: more than 1500 people died

According to initial determinations, more than 1500 people passed away in the 5.9-magnitude earthquake that occurred in Afghanistan's Paktika.

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) first announced the magnitude of the earthquake as 6.1 but then updated it to 5.9.

46 kilometers away from the southwest of Khost province in eastern Afghanistan was announced as a epicenter of the earthquake. The earthquake, which happened at 01:24 local time, was strongly felt in the surrounding cities, including the capital Kabul.

The earthquake was also felt in major Pakistani cities near the border, such as Pakistan's capital Islamabad, and Peshawar. It was announced that the earthquake took place at a depth of 10 kilometers from the ground.

While Afghan social media users shared photos of the earthquake, some users expressed their concern that the loss of life and property could be increased.

By now, there has been no official statement by Afghan authorities about the loss of life and property. In January, a 5.3-magnitude earthquake had struck Afghanistan's Badgis province, killing 26 people.
