A magnitude of 4.3 Earthquake Strikes Afghanistan

An earthquake of magnitude 4.3 struck Afghanistan on the 2nd of July, 2024, at 06:39:09 IST. The seismic event occurred at a latitude of 36.22 N and a longitude of 71.15 E, with a depth of 134 kilometers.

Residents in the vicinity reported feeling mild tremors, though no immediate reports of damage or casualties have been received. The earthquake’s depth likely mitigated its potential impact on the surface, reducing the risk of significant harm.

Afghanistan, situated in a seismically active region, experiences frequent earthquakes due to the tectonic movements of the Indian Plate and the Eurasian Plate. Authorities continue to monitor the situation closely and advise residents to remain cautious and prepared for any aftershocks.

Local emergency services are on alert to respond to any incidents that may arise following the quake. Further assessments will be conducted to determine the extent of any structural damage and to ensure the safety and well-being of the affected communities.
