The recent earthquake incident in South Asia, measuring 8.1 on the Richter scale, claimed over 350 lives and caused an estimated 2,000 fatalities on the first day alone. Areas affected include Pakistan, Afghanistan and India.
In view of this, muslimaid.org has put together some facts about earthquakes you may not have known.
It’s frightening how the destruction caused by just 10 seconds of an earthquake can cause such phenomenal damage; it is unreal. Buildings, landmarks, homes, belongings and so much more can all be thoroughly destroyed in the chaos that it creates.
