Of 26th And Earthquakes

Areas of Pakistan, Afghanistan and India were jolted yesterday, the 26th of December, 2015, by an earthquake of magnitude 6.4. The tremors were felt late at night, and caused injuries to over more than 40 people as old and decapitated buildings in some areas collapsed.

It should be noted that the earthquake occurred exactly two months after the 26th October earthquake, which had taken the lives of around 300 people and had occurred in the same region.
