According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC), some 20 million people felt the quake across Iran and possibly in neighbouring Turkey. The earthquakes' shallow depth amplified the shaking.
Some houses and buildings in rural Iran suffered damage after the country was hit by a magnitude-5.2 earthquake. The local media, however, reported that were no injuries or fatalities resulting from the earthquake. The epicentre of the quake was reported to be at a depth of 10 km
The quake struck just after 8 pm in Iran, meaning most were still awake at the time and able to quickly flee.
A powerful 7.3 magnitude earthquake near the Iraq-Iran border killed at least 450 people across both countries.
