A magnitude 4.8 earthquake near Jand, Attock District, Punjab, Pakistan, was reported only 17 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 an intermediate to considerable depth of 220 km beneath the epicenter early afternoon on Tuesday, September 14th, 2021, at 3:40 pm 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.8 as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Jand (pop. 18,200) located 4 km from the epicenter, Pindi Gheb (pop. 34,300) 31 km away, Attock City (pop. 85,500) 45 km away, Kohat (pop. 151,400) 57 km away, Nowshera Cantonment (pop. 96,800) 60 km away, Tordher (pop. 150,000) 63 km away, Rawalpindi (pop. 1,743,100) 94 km away, Chakwal (pop. 101,200) 95 km away, and Islamabad (pop. 601,600) 97 km away.
