NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- A magnitude 7.4 earthquake hit southwestern Pakistan on Tuesday, the U.S. Geological Survey reports.

The earthquake was relatively shallow, at 6.2 miles below the earth's surface. It struck 25 miles west of Dalbandin, Pakistan at 1:23 a.m. local time on Wednesday.

Tremors from the quake were felt in a number of cities surrounding the region, including Delhi, India and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
