More than 450 have been killed in #iran and injured 7,000 when a powerful 7.3 #earthquake struck on sunday nighy close to the border with #Iraq and Iran, making it the deadliest of 2017. (Numbers are preliminary). About 50 aftershocks were felt across Iraq and Iran and as far as #Kuwait, #Qatar, #Turkey, #Israel and the #UnitedArabEmirates. Several cities are cut off from electricity, and rescue teams on both sides are rushing to provide shelter and aid to those affected. Most of the victims are believed to be in the Iranian town of Sarpol-e Zahab.
The #Iranian Red Crescent said more than 70,000 people needed #emergency shelter. It is "difficult to send rescue teams to the villages because the roads have been cut off ... there have been #landslides," said Iran's emergency services chief, Pir Hossein Koolivand. Sadly many houses in rural parts of Iran are made of mud bricks, which are known to crumble easily during heavy earthquakes. #Pray for those affected by this #disaster!
Being situated near a #faultline, earthquakes are frequent in the region. In 2012, two earthquakes hit north-west Iran killing 200 people, with more than 2,000 injured, near the towns of Tabriz and Ahar. In 2003, a 6.6 magnitude earthquake flattened the historic city of Bam in southeastern Iran, killing some 26,000 people, 1000 km (600 miles) southeast of Tehran.
