5.2 quake 25 Jan 12:01 am (GMT +5)
The event was filed by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the first seismological agency to report it.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 5.1 earthquake.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Khorugh (pop. 30,000) located 41 km from the epicenter, Ishqoshim (pop. 26,000) 45 km away, Ashkāsham (pop. 12,100) 50 km away, Khandūd (pop. 5,500) 64 km away, Jurm (pop. 12,100) 77 km away, and Fayzabad (pop. 44,400) 93 km away.
