A strong quake of magnitude 6.0 struck southeastern Iran near the city of Kerman on Friday, the U.S. Geological Survey said, Reuters reported.
It struck at 6:32 a.m. (0232 GMT) and was very shallow, at a depth of 6.2 miles (10 km), which would have amplified the shaking, Reuters reported.
A magnitude 6.0 quake is considered strong and is capable of causing severe damage.
