UPDATE: Earthquake tremors jolted Lahore, Sargodha, Sialkot, Faisalabad, Nankana Sahib, Sheikhupura and other parts of Punjab on Wednesday.

The 4.1 magnitude earthquake was recorded at a depth of 10 kilometres, according to the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) with the epicentre being near Nankana Sahib. The PMD previously estimated the earthquake’s magnitude at 4.0.

A television footage showed the electronic fixtures literally shaking inside the buildings. More than a dozen small quakes have been felt in the region since 2016 began, Dawn News reports.

“[Our country is located] on an earthquake-prone belt, but this does not mean that things are dangerous for Pakistan all the time,” the country’s top meteorologist, Director General Met Dr Ghulam Rasul said earlier in January.

Earthquake jolts were felt in different parts of Punjab including Lahore and surrounding areas on Wednesday, as reported by Express News.

The magnitude of the quake is still not known. The earthquake was massive enough to make people leave their houses and offices in great panic. So far, there are no casualties reported.

The extent of earthquakes has increased over the past few months after the massive 5.8 magnitude quake shook Islamabad and parts of KPK, last month. A 7.2 magnitude quake has also hit northern Pakistan.

The epicentre of that massive earthquake tremors was reportedly the Hindu Kush range and across Dir, Chitral, Mianwali, Malkand, Rawalpindi, Lahore, Peshawar, Chitral and Islamabad.

Tremors were also felt in seven of Hazara districts along with Haripur, Mansehra, Abbottabad, Torghar, Kohistan and Battagram.

Mobile phone services were disrupted in a few areas of KPK, after the earthquake, last month.
