DUSHANBE, October 27. /TASS/. A powerful earthquake with the epicenter in Afghanistan has affected several villages in Tajikistan’s Gorno-Badakhshan autonomous region. A source in the National Emergencies Committee told TASS on Tuesday no one had been hurt.
"Since Monday, when on the territory adjacent to Tajikistan - in the Hindu Kush mountain range in Afghanistan - a strong magnitude-7.5 earthquake occurred, all rescue units have been conducting round-the-clock monitoring, collecting information from outlying areas," the source said.
Tajikistan’s National Emergencies Committee said that in the morning they had received information on the partial damage to about 20 residential buildings, several schools and other social facilities in the settlements of Ishkashim, Roshtkala, Murghab and other villages in Badakhshan, which borders on the territory where the earthquake’s epicenter was located.
Seismic stations in Tajikistan register more than 1,000 earthquakes per year, but people feel only dozens of them.
A major earthquake hit Afghanistan on Monday at 13:39 local time (12:09 Moscow Time). The earthquake was widely felt in Pakistan and India, having left a total of 350 people dead and 2,200 injured.
