The provincial disaster management authority said that the rescue efforts have been hampered due to the landslides caused by the earthquake. The authority said that they were clearing the roads leading to the damaged areas as soon as possible. Although many places were affected but Harnai is said to be the worst-hit region where most of the houses are made of mud and stones and are more at risk of damage from such calamities. The areas affected have more coal mines which could also collapse during the earthquakes.

Most of the deaths in these places were held due to the collapse of the roofs and the walls. The dead population included children and women. Rescue officials said that they will be able to conduct a more accurate assessment of the damage that occurred.
