Developing: 7.4 Quake Hits Pakistan
A magnitude 7.4 earthquake has hit Southwestern Pakistan. Thus far, no reports of damage or casualties, but with a significant quake of this magnitude and the poor construction techniques prevalent in the region, I would expect to see damage and casualty reports coming in soon. A saving grace against a high death toll is the relatively low population density in this part of Pakistan.
