ISLAMABAD: Earthquake hits Islamabad and Lahore. The quake was measured at 5.9 on the Richter Scale at around 11.31 am Pakistan Standard Time. This range is volatile and prone to earthquakes because seismicity in the Himalaya dominantly results from the continental collision of the India and Eurasia plates, which are converging at a relative rate of 40-50 mm/yr.
