Massive Earthquakes Hit Pakistan

The quake started at about 8.52 am when i was lying in my room in Abbottabad.I got up from my bed but the jolts thrusted me against the wall at other side.It was really a horrifying experience as it seemed that you were walking on water.
Alot of unimaginable incidents took place in my surroundings which i enumerate as follows:

  1. One M.O jumped from his room on 2nd floor of the doctor's hostel to save his life but he died at the point.Two other guys jumped from their rooms but they also suffered severe injuries.Another guy got his body paralyzed.
  2. One of the walls of our Anatomy department fell over 2 brand new corrolla cars & they were crushed to death.Almost all the window panes broke off in our college.
  3. Approximately 5 huge 3 storey plazas in Mandian,Abbottabad were burried in the ground with the inital jolts of the quake.
  4. All kachi abadi houses were lying on the ground with no one there to morn as whole families were burried underneath them.
  5. Almost all of the roads were blocked as the people were to trying to rush out of the city.
According to U.S Geology Department almost 20 earthquakes have hit Pakistan which range from 4.5 to 6.3 on the Richter Scale since yesterday.The inital one had the value of 7.6
