Fortunately, in Rogun of this earthquake does not hurt either one of the residents and none of the buildings of the city are not prejudiced.

Fortunately, the other death and destruction throughout the country there.
Currently, residents of Rogun, as before, are busy with their daily activities and concerns.

Sincerely residents Rogun — Murod Sadulloev, Anvarshoh Murodov Nurali Akhmadov Abdusattor Gashev and others.
