12 Décembre 2017

Iran's state TV says that a magnitude 6.2 natural disaster has jolted the country's southern province of Kerman.

The quake with 6.2 magnitude jolted Iran today. There are no reports of casualties or damage to infrastructure so far.

Another quake that hits the Iranian state at 5.4 occurred in western Iran on Monday, where last month 530 people died because of 7.3 magnitude natural disaster.

It occurred at a shallow depth of six miles and 34 miles north-east of Kerman, a provincial capital. Earlier, President Hassan Rouhani highlighted his government's efforts in providing aid and temporary housing to the victims of last month's quake.

Iran is prone to near-daily earthquakes because it sits on major fault lines.

Schools were closed in some areas of the province, ISNA news agency reported.

Iran's worst quake in recent years struck near the city of Bam in 2003, which saw the ancient city decimated by a 6.6 -magnitude tremor that killed at least 31,000 people. No casualties and damage have reported by the officials yet.
