6.0 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Iran’s Kerman, No Casaulty Reported
A powerful 6.0 magnitude earthquake rocked Iran’s Kerman on Friday, the US Geological Survey reported. There has been no report of any casualty so far.
The powerful quake occurred a few days after Iran’s western province of Kermanshah was struck by 7.3-magnitude quake which claimed 483 lives.
The 7.3-magnitude quake struck the mountainous region bordering Iraq late on November 12, injuring more than 12,000 people and leaving thousands homeless.
Iran sees frequent seismic activity. In 1990, a 7.4- magnitude quake in northern Iran killed 40,000 people, injured 300,000 and left half a million homeless.
