Magnitude 5.8 quake hits southeast Iran, fourth temblor in two days

(Worthy News) – At least 25 people were injured on Monday when a magnitude 5.8 earthquake shook southeastern Iran, just a day after another quake injured nearly 290 people in the west, Iranian media reported.

Rescue teams have been sent to 40 affected villages, Kerman province Red Crescent spokesman Hadi Soltani told the student news agency ISNA.

The U.S. Geological Survey put the magnitude of the quake at 5.5, with its epicentre 23 miles (37 km) east of Kerman city. It said it was very shallow, at a depth of only 6.2 miles (10 km), which would have amplified its effect. [ Source: Reuters (Read More…) ]
