Earthquake in Pakistan

An earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale struck on Tuesday in the
Balochistan province that has claimed more than 330 lives in the remote and
sparsely populated south-western area.

Imran Mujtaba AP2MI reports that members of the Pakistan Amateur Radio Society
(PARS) have provided emergency communications support.

He said they have been extending cooperation and contributing to the disaster
relief operation, helped by outside experts.

The earthquake destroyed hundreds of houses and cut communications. In the
worst affected area of Awaran it caused a small island to emerge just off
the Pakistani coastline in the Arabian Sea.

The army and rescuers are still searching for survivors in one of the country's
remotest areas.

It was the worst earthquake in Pakistan since 2005, when about 75,000 people
were killed in the north.

Pakistan earthquake - aid workers safety

While the toll mounts from the widespread area hit by the 7.7 scale earthquake
on Tuesday in south-western Pakistan, an army helicopter with VIPs came under
attack making it unsafe in that area for ground workers.

President of the Pakistan Relief, Mujtaba Haider Imran AP2MI, said government
officials put the death toll at 349, more than 600 injured and many hundreds
of homes destroyed.

The deaths are climbing as the teams move in the area spanning 300 kilometres
between Kech and Avaran.

Pakinstan Amateur Radio Society members have been prepared to provide some
emergency communications support to the disaster relief operation in the
remote and thinly populated area.

In the affected area is Umair AP2MUT, expected to give more information on
the devastation and needed supplies.

Roughly an area of 500 kilometres is affected, with many houses destroyed.
There have been 16 aftershocks recorded so far.

Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said,
"There are certain areas where aid couldn't be provided even after 48 hours".


The Minister was also engaged in talks to resolve an earlier incident. In
a safety advice to aid workers, they were told that for the time being, on
ground relief activities are not being considered safe.

The warning came after the attack on an army helicopter carrying senior government
officials including Chairman of the National Disaster Management Authority.

Meanwhile Pakistan Army Aviation, Frontier Corps and ANF helicopters are
busy providing relief to the affected population in Awaran, Kech.

Those severely injured are being sent to the hospitals in nearby cities.
Some local health units have crowded facilities and have run out of medication
to offer even basic first aid.

Pakistan Relief has donated 2500 jerry cans, 1500 mosquito nets, some first
aid kits and other essential equipment.

The coordination process is underway with Pakistan Air Force and Army Aviation
to airlift and drop these goods in the worst hit areas.
