Pakistan earthquake - M7.7

This looks fairly isolated, but I bet it is a 'superquake'.  You can see it's a hybrid, between a thrust and strike-slip.  It will be difficult to get to the epicentre, and more difficult to estimate a PGV.  Hopefully, the isolation limits the number of casualties.

Update:  Very isolated, no cities hit.
