The earthquake that shook northeastern Afghanistan on Monday, November 7, was 5.4 on the Richter scale, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The epicenter of this earthquake was at a depth of 103 kilometers in the Jurm district of Badakhshan.

The city of Faizabad, the heart of Badakhshan, Afghanistan, as well as several areas of Badakhshan, Tajikistan, have all felt the effects of the earthquake.

There is currently no information available regarding the earthquake’s potential damages or casualties.

Natural disasters in Afghanistan, earthquakes, flash floods, landslides, and powerful wind gusts, have devastatingly struck Afghanistan, resulting in the loss of many lives, while leaving numerous people displaced as Afghanistan is coping with one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises.
