Tajikistan, 07 December, 2015 - M 7.2

A major earthquake struck southeastern Tajikistan earlier today. The M 7.2 event occurred in a remote region, so hopefully few (or none) were affected.

Tajikistan has a good seismic network. The closest real-time station is at Manem, Tajikistan. You can observe the larger aftershocks on the signals recorded there (the station is about 80 miles or 128 km away from the mainshock epicenter).

The mainshock went off scale at this site. Here's a look at what's going on at the time of this post.
