    The Seismological center of Hormozgan province affiliated to the Geophysics Institute of Tehran University registered the quake 09:37 hours local time (0507 GMT).

    The epicenter of the quake was located in an area 54.9 degrees in longitude and 27.6 degrees in latitude.

    There are yet no reports on the number of possible casualties or damage to properties by the quake.

    On November 2017 a strong earthquake measuring 7.3 on the Richter scale rattled all cities and towns along Iran's Western border with Iraq.

    More than 500 were killed in the quake while 7,817 others were injured.

    Iran is criss-crossed with fault lines and is regularly hit by earthquakes, experiencing at least one slight tremor every day on average.

    Iran sits astride several major faults in the earth's crust, and is prone to frequent earthquakes, many of which have been devastating.

    I can't find anything available (yet) of any damage or injuries.
