Strong quake of magnitude 6.0 strikes Southeastern Iran

USGS: 5.1 Magnitude Earthquake Rattles Parts Of Delaware Valley

The temblor's center was reported near Dover, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Over 100 quants (ancient aqueducts) and a historic mudbrick tower across Ravar County, southeastern Kerman province, were damaged as a 6.1-magnitude quake hit the region early on Friday.

USGS geophysicist John Bellini told the Associated Press that any damage would be minimal.

People say they felt the quake in different pockets of South Jersey, including in Vineland where a resident said on Facebook that they felt their house shaking, as well as Pennsylvania.

A strong quake of magnitude 6.0 struck southeastern Iran, injuring at least 42 people and destroying several homes in an area where most people live in villages of mud-walled homes. "It was actually pretty scary and pretty surprising".

Partly cloudy skies, temps above normal this weekend
This blast of cold air will cause highs to only reach the mid-to-upper 50s while lows will fall to into the low 40s and upper 30s. Skies should brighten heading into the afternoon, though, with temperatures rising into the mid-to-upper 50s.

Paul Caruso, a geophysicist with the USGS's natural disaster information center in Colorado, said he didn't expect any significant damage from the small quake, which he described as unusual.

Aftershocks in the wake of the Friday morning's 6-magnitude natural disaster have raised concerns in the region.

The University of Tehran's seismology centre gave slightly different figures, announcing an quake of 6.1, followed by aftershocks of 5.1 and 4.

Activities that have induced such quakes have included impounding water behind dams, injecting fluid into the planet's crust, extracting fluid or gas, and removing rock during mining or quarrying operations.
