    Today I felt the earth move under my feet at around 1600-1700 hours local time [gmt+5], but there is no statement of any earthquakes in my country, Pakistan, but an underground earthquake did rock our city karachi, a few days back.

      Najeeb - We have checked various records, but could not find any 4+ magnitude earthquake in the greater Karachi area. It might have been a small local one.
