Natural disaster hits Kerman Province in southeast Iran

Online exhibit

Iranian television said the quake hit near the town of Hejdak, around 400 miles (700km) south of the capital Tehran, but there is no word so far on any potential deaths or injuries. As a result, earthquakes in Iran occur often and are destructive. There were no immediate reports of casualties or major damage.

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. President Hassan Rouhani highlighted his government's efforts in providing help and temporary home to the victims of the quake of last month.

An quake measuring 6 on the Richter Scale shook the border region of Iran and Iraq on Monday evening, the Iran Seismological Centre said.

In the epicenter of the quake, which struck at about 12:43 local time, the tremor measured magnitude 7-8 points. No casualties and damage have reported by the officials yet.

Iran has experienced at least two other major disasters in recent years - one in 2005 that killed more than 600 people and another in 2012 that left some 300 dead.
