No casualty has been been reported so far.

In August, over 300 families were displaced in Balochistan’s Washuk after a quake destroyed their houses.

The intensity of the earthquake was 5.4 and it was centred 56km North East of Khuzdar. Aftershocks were also experienced. The most affected area was Kali Sajid in Baseema tehsil.

People were already sleeping outside their homes because of the heat, which saved their lives.
