An earthquake of 4.6 magnitudes jolted the Hindu Kush region, 30 km Jurm district of Badakhshan, Afghanistan, on Tuesday, reported by US Geological Survey.

According to the US Geological Survey, the tremor of 4.6 magnitudes occurred at 8:07 am local time on Tuesday with the epicentre of the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan, 30 km Jurm district of Badakhshan.

This is the fifth earthquake within the past seven days in the northeast province of Afghanistan Badakhshan.

No causalities have been reported so far. 

The frequency of natural disasters, notably earthquakes, has increased the worry of local people and the need to be cautious.

The region is seismologically active and prone to natural disasters since it is approximate to the Chamman fault.

Last month, a strong earthquake hit Afghanistan and Pakistan with a magnitude of 6.5, killing at least 19 people and more than 200 injured. 

The earthquake had financial damages, destroyed more than 656 residential buildings, and triggered landslides. 

Natural disasters leave massive damage in the country due to poor infrastructure, response systems and transportation networks.
