A 4.9-scale earthquake that struck the southern Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas early Wednesday local time has injured injuring at least 700, according to Iran State Media.
The quake struck at 2:56 am Iran Time and was also felt in the nearby Qeshm highland.
Reports from the scene are reliant on Iran media and are sketchy. It’s believe that the injuries may have been caused by building collapses, but at the same time such damage may have resulted in fatalities.
