Earthquake? [Sep. 10th, 2008|03:06 pm]

Either somebody just shook our apartment around, or that was an earthquake.


A 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck southern Iran near Bandar Abbas, site of a major Iranian oil refinery, the US Geological Service said.

The quake hit at 1100 GMT about 53 km west-southwest of Bandar Abbas at a depth of 55 km, the US agency said.

There were no immediate reports on damage, but residents in the United Arab Emirates, across the Gulf from Iran, reported feeling a slight tremor.

I just twittered the USGS link at you, for "did you feel it?"

I woke up, saw it in my mail (yes, I get email updates), and thought, "6.1, that's not bad." Then I remembered, "Oh, southern Iran, where things are built of mud?" and remembered Bam, and checked -- sure enough, it's bad.
