4.5 quake 10 Sep 10:22 am (GMT +5)
An intermediate to deep magnitude 4.5 earthquake was reported in the morning near Dīr, Upper Dīr District, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan.
According to India’s National Center for Seismology (NCS), the quake hit on Friday, September 10th, 2021, at 10:22 am local time at an intermediate to considerable depth of 178 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. 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.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Dīr (pop. 29,900) located 15 km from the epicenter, Thal (pop. 29,300) 31 km away, Mingora (pop. 279,900) 61 km away, Āsmār (pop. 15,700) 66 km away, and Bat Khela (pop. 46,100) 72 km away. In Assad-Abad (pop. 48,400, 91 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
