On Tuesday afternoon, an earthquake struck the province of Baluchistan, a southwest province of Pakistan, leaving several buildings collapsed and completely destroyed. As of Wednesday, 8:20 a.m. EDT, the death toll has risen to 327, according to Reuters.
At least 350 people were injured, according to a report by NBC News.
The earthquake was recorded at a magnitude of 7.7-7.8, according to several reports. While the Baluchistan province was hit the hardest by the quake, it was felt as far as the Indian capital of New Delhi, 740 miles east of Baluchistan.
Currently, the Pakistan army has reportedly airlifted soldiers numbering close to 1,000 to assist with rescue and recovery efforts in the Baluchistan region.
An island also rose up from the water off the Gwadar coast, which seismologists claim was formed by a “mud volcano,” a powerful jet of mud sand and water that shot up to the surface from the ocean floor, according to a report by NBC News.
