Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province was hit by a 5.5 magnitude earthquake on Tuesday, with the epicenter close to the border with Tajikistan.
Tremors were also felt in other regions such as Malakand and Swat, leading to fears among locals as it comes days after the devastating Nepal earthquake, that has killed over 4000.
People rushed out of homes and buildings, according to DAWN.
No casualties or injuries have been reported yet.
The depth of the earthquake on Tuesday was 144 kilometres, according to the meteorological department.
Pakistan has sent aid and rescue missions to Nepal which was ravaged by a 7.9 magnitude earthquake on Saturday.
