On 15 October, Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) has declared emergency in district Harnai as natural calamity area due to the earthquake. At least 21 people kill and more than 300 people injured. According to the local administration, there are around 800 to 1000 fully/severely damaged houses. Majority of the houses in the area were made with mud and stones, making them quite vulnerable to disasters such as earthquakes. The earthquake badly affected Union councils of Saddar 1, Saddar 2, Naqas, Sharaq and Badyaan. Due to remoteness of the area, authorities were facing hurdles in initial response as some roads had been blocked due to landslides. (IFRC, 17 Oct 2021)
