Another 6.3-Magnitude Earthquake Rattles Afghanistan

HeadlineOct 11, 2023

Afghanistan was rocked by another 6.3-magnitude earthquake early this morning in western Herat province, as locals are still reeling from Saturday’s series of deadly quakes. The region’s governor said today’s earthquake caused “huge losses,” though it’s not clear yet how many people were killed or displaced. Rescuers are still working to recover residents who perished over the weekend. This is one of the survivors.

Ahmad: “In some neighboring villages, dead bodies are still under the rubble. They couldn’t pull the bodies yet. Some people have tents, and some do not. I have no tent. We cannot spend the winter here.”
