Iran Mourns Victims of Last Night's Powerful Earthquake

Posted on November 13, 2017 at 10:29 AM
Three-days of mourning have been declared across Iran for the 395 dead victims of last night's powerful 7.3 earthquake that struck about 9:19 p.m. Iranian time, around the western border and the northeastern border of Iraq. Another 6,650 people, thus far, have been counted as being injured in the natural disaster.

Most of the Iranian deaths and injuries were reported in the western province of Kermanshah close to the Iraq border, where another seven people were killed and many others injured in the Kurdish region of Iraq, along the Iranian border. 

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has sent condolences to the victims and he has called upon the military and civilians to assist victims, CNN reported.

Last night's earthquake, with an epicenter along the Iran-Iraq border at a depth of some 14-miles underground, according to the United States(US) Geological Survey, has surpassed Mexico City's earthquake in September to become the most deadly seismic event thus far in 2017. Deaths in the Mexico City quake numbered 369 compared to last night's toll, so far, of 402 in Iran and in Iraq.

Iran is prone to earthquakes since it lies atop a major fault line of the Arabian(Persian) and Eurasian tectonic plates. The former plate is overriding the lower plate that gives Iran its mountainous geological character. 

Recent major earthquakes in Iran include a 6.4 event in February 2005 in Kerman province that killed some 400; a December 2003 tragedy that killed 26,000 people and destroyed the historic city of Bam in the south; and the June 1990 disaster that killed 40,000 people in the northern province Gilan, the BBC-News reported.

Our condolences and prayers go out to the people of Iran and Iraq as we call upon international relief agencies and kind governments to render all services needed to the Iranian people.

I would like to express some thanks to the writer for bailing me out of this condition. As a result of checking throughout the search engines and coming across recommendations which are not productive, I assumed my entire life was well over. Being alive minus the approaches to the difficulties you have sorted out as a result of your blog post is a critical case, as well as the kind which may have negatively damaged my entire career if I hadn't encountered your web site. Your primary skills and kindness in touching all things was important. I'm not sure what I would have done if I hadn't encountered such a thing like this. I'm able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thank you very much for the specialized and results-oriented help. I will not be reluctant to suggest your site to anyone who should have care on this area.
