Earthquake! More Tragedy in Northern Pakistan – October 2015

October 26, 2015 Earthquake – The most severe effects felt in remote, mountainous areas in Pakistan’s north-western region.

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Pakistan, the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has created an interactive online mapping platform which can be used to analyse the effects of the 7.5 magnitude earthquake which struck Pakistan and Afghanistan on 26 October 2015. At least 255 people were killed in northern Pakistan, and the full impacts are still being assessed two days later, due to the inaccessibility of the affected areas.
