Pakistan Earthquake

A major earthquake with the magnitude of 7.8 hits Pakistan, causing a new island to rise from the sea just off the country’s southern coast. It struck 235 km southeast of Dalbandin in Pakistan’s quake prone province of Baluchistan ( This part is close to Iran ).

The earthquake was so powerful, it caused the seabed to rise and create a small island, nearly 600 meters off Pakistan’s coastline in the Arabian sea.

The casualty rate for this quake is unknown. But officials say 45 people had been killed so far. This number may rise.
