Magnitude 5.0 earthquake hits Bangladesh

Around 1 hour and 20 mins ago at 12:51 AM (Dhaka, GMT +6) an earthquake of magnitude 5.0 hit Bangladesh. I felt it as if someone was rocking my bed. The quake was quite strong for my little or no earthquake experience. It lasted from 10 to 30 seconds, cannot say accurately. So far the only news on media is from BDNews24 site which says someone broke his leg when he jumped from a floor.

The earthquake was felt in Maymansingh, 115 KM away from Dhaka and the depth was around 12 km or 7.5 miles.

However more recent and accurate data (also scientific data) with maps can be found at USGS site.
