Rumors of Another Quake Keep Kashmiris Out

By MUJTABA ALI AHMAD
Associated Press Writer
SRINAGAR, India
Hundreds of Kashmiris still on edge from the weekend's devastating earthquake rushed out of their homes and spent the frigid night outdoors after hundreds of mosques announced warnings of a new quake.

People jumped out of their beds late Sunday and ran into the streets, holding their children.

"I don't want to take a chance. What if there is a quake?" said Atiqa Bano, a 65-year-old housewife.

"There is going to be another quake, please leave your homes and go into open places," mosque officials shouted over loudspeakers in Srinagar, the summer capital of India's Jammu-Kashmir state.

Terrified people contacted their relatives and friends on mobile phones, urging them to get out of their homes. Women prayed aloud during the night as children clung to them.

At least 750 people were killed in Indian-administered Kashmir by Saturday's magnitude-7.6 earthquake, which flattened dozens of villages and triggered landslides that blocked rescuers from reaching many devastated areas. In neighboring Pakistan, the death toll ranged from 20,000 to 30,000.

G.K. Mohanty, a local meteorologist, said no strong earthquakes were recorded overnight Sunday, although dozens of aftershocks have been recorded since Saturday's devastating quake.

Police urged people to return to their homes, assuring them that there was no official earthquake warning.
