A powerful 7.5 magnitude quake struck Afghanistan’s Hindu Kush region Monday and was felt throughout much of South Asia.

The US Geological Survey put the epicentre near Jurm in northeast Afghanistan, 250 kilometres from the capital Kabul and at a depth of 213.5 km.

The epitcentre is close to the site of an October 2005 quake which had a 7.6 magnitude quake and killed more than 75,000 people, displacing some 3.5 million more, although that quake was much shallower.

Here are all the eyewitness accounts, reactions on Twitter. The most latest tweets will be displayed below:
