Iran earthquake Huge 5 7 magnitude quake hits state sends aftershocks as far as Iraq
IRAN has been rocked by a massive 5.6 magnitude earthquake today, according to reports from state media sources.
The quake centered near the town of Khesht which is just 55 miles away from Iran’s sole nuclear power plant in the port of Bushehr. Authorities say the facility was built to withstand powerful quakes.
But it was so strong that it could be felt in the city of Basra which sits in southern Iraq close to the border with Iran.
As of yet, it is unclear if there has been any damage or casualties from the quake.
