An earthquake struck the coastal city of Karachi and surrounding areas in the southern Sindh province, causing mild to moderate tremors, seismic authorities said Wednesday evening.

According to the National Seismological Center (NSMC), the tremors were recorded at 9:26 pm.

The earthquake measured 3.2 on the Richter scale at a depth of 42 kilometers. The epicenter of the earthquake was 32 kilometers southwest of Karachi.

The authorities are monitoring the situation and advised residents to remain calm. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.

Earlier today, a 4.7-magnitude earthquake struck Islamabad, Rawalpindi and parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Tremors from the quake were felt throughout the Twin Cities as well as cities throughout the country's northwestern province.

Cities in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, where tremors were felt, included Peshawar, Swat, Parachinar, Malakand, Lower Dir, Hangu, Charsadda, Swabi and their surrounding areas. Tremors were also recorded in North and South Waziristan areas.

According to the National Seismological Center, the epicenter of the earthquake was the southeastern region of Afghanistan.

She added that the depth of the earthquake was 98 kilometers.

In the first week of this month, a 3.2 magnitude earthquake struck parts of Karachi including the Clifton neighbourhood.

The epicenter of the earthquake was 15 kilometers northeast of Karachi and at a depth of 22 kilometers, according to the Seismic Center.

However, no loss of life or property due to the earthquake was reported.

This was the third time the city experienced a minor earthquake in the past few weeks before June.

On May 2, a 2.3 magnitude earthquake struck parts of the city including Gadap Town, Katohar and adjoining areas in Malir District.

The epicenter of the earthquake was 38 kilometers northeast of Malir and at a depth of 84 kilometers, according to the Seismological Center.

Likewise, a 3.2 magnitude earthquake struck Malir district of Karachi on April 24.

Natural disasters such as earthquakes are not common in Pakistan, as the country lies on the border of the Indian and Eurasian tectonic plates.

Large parts of South Asia are seismically active because the tectonic plate known as the Indian plate is pushing northward toward the Eurasian plate.

Recent earthquakes underscore the importance of disaster preparedness and mitigation measures.
