3.2-Magnitude Earthquake Jolts Karachi’s Malir

An earthquake of a magnitude of 3.2 rocked Karachi's Malir area on Wednesday.

According to the National Seismic Monitoring Centre, the earthquake's epicenter was 12 kilometers deep and located near New Malir Karachi. 

Fortunately, there were no reports of casualties or damage to property as a result of the tremor. 

Given that Pakistan is located on the border between the Indian and Eurasian tectonic plates, natural calamities like earthquakes frequently occur there. 

The Indian plate, a tectonic plate, is pushing northward onto the Eurasian plate, causing significant seismic activity over most of South Asia. 

Disaster preparedness and mitigation strategies are crucial, as demonstrated by the recent earthquakes.
