Homes collapse as 7.7 quake hits Pakistan

  • A magnitude 7.7 earthquake collapsed over two dozen houses and killed at least two people in Pakistan. The figure is 10, as per "The Dawn" while Twitter reported the number to be as high as 30. 

    Pakistan's chief meteorologist said the disaster hit the southern part of Baluchistan province. Rescue teams have been sent to the areas that were affected. Although, the quake only hit the small province with little population, tremors were felt in far away areas such as in Karachi and New Delhi. 

    "I was working on my computer in the office," a Karachi resident said. "Suddenly I felt tremors. My table and computer started shaking. I thought I am feeling dizziness but soon realized they were tremors."

    Officials reported that people in Pakistan went into the streets and prayed for their lives.
