4.8 quake 24 Jul 12:42 am (GMT +4:30)
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at an intermediate to considerable depth of 236.8 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Ashkāsham (pop. 12,100) located 67 km from the epicenter, Ishqoshim (pop. 26,000) 75 km away, Jurm (pop. 12,100) 77 km away, Faizabad (pop. 44,400) 111 km away, and Faizabad (pop. 44,400) 111 km away.
