A moderate earthquake was felt in parts of Afghanistan including the capital Kabul on Monday evening. No epicenter and magnitude are available yet. People from Kabul reported a strong shaking, which indicates an epicenter close to the city.
Update 16:32 UTC
The Pakistani seismic monitoring center located the epicenter of the quake right in the center of Kabul. It reached Magnitude 5.0 and occurred in a depth of 123 km.
Update 16:48 UTC
The USGS has detected Magnitude 4.6 and a depth of only 8 km. A shallow depth makes the quake significantly more dangerous as the intensity was higher. Therefore minor damage can be expected in Kabul, especially in the north-western parts close to the epicenter.

    People :
    Felt by persons at rest, on upper floors or favorably placed.
    MMI III (Weak shaking) ?
    People :

Most unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, some below roof-line, many brought down. Environment : Cracks appear on steep slopes and in wet ground. Small to moderate slides in roadside cuttings and unsupported excavations. Small water and sand ejections and localized lateral spreading adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged. Damage or permanent distortion to some buildings and bridges, designed and built to normal use standards. Houses not secured to foundations shifted off. Brick veneers fall and expose frames.
