4.3 quake 6 Aug 12:36 am (GMT +5)
According to India's National Center for Seismology (NCS), the quake hit on Saturday, August 6th, 2022, at 12:36 am local time at an intermediate depth of 115 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Khandūd (pop. 5,500) located 40 km from the epicenter, Khorugh (pop. 30,000) 98 km away, and Khorugh (pop. 30,000) 98 km away. In Ishqoshim (pop. 26,000, 104 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
