A 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck Afghanistan today near the boarders of Tajikistan and Pakistan, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
The quake’s epicenter was 176 miles from Kabul. The shaking was felt in Islamabad, Pakistan and New Delhi, India.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was 203.5 km deep. Deeper earthquakes tend to cause less damage than shallower earthquakes of the same magnitude.
Potential damage was not immediately clear.
The epicenter fell 81km southeast of the Afghan city of Feyzabad, 40km west-south-west of Ashkasham, according to US seismological monitors.
