A magnitude 4.8 earthquake near Nankana Sahib, Nankāna Sāhib District, Punjab, Pakistan, was reported only 13 minutes ago by India's National Center for Seismology (NCS), considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in this part of the world. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter in the morning on Wednesday, June 15th, 2022, at 9:41 am local time. 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.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Nankana Sahib (pop. 56,400) located 9 km from the epicenter, Jaranwala (pop. 119,800) 22 km away, and Shahkot (pop. 200,000) 22 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
