A powerful earthquake rattled Pakistan early Wednesday with enough energy that that it was felt as far away as the Gulf of India.

The 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck at 1:23 am, local time, in a  remote area in southwest Pakistan.

It's not uncommon for this region to have earthquakes. It is where two tectonic plates come together said CNN quoted Kurt Frankel of the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Tremors were felt as far away as New Delhi, about 1,3000 kilometers away, other cities in northwestern India, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS).

No word of fatalities have been reported.
