At Least 2 Killed, Over 200 Injured As Magnitude 6.0 Earthquake Jolts Western Iran

A strong earthquake with a magnitude of 6.0 has struck western Iran, near the border of Iraq on Saturday.

The quake hit 26 km southwest of Javanrud, Iran, at a depth of 10 kilometers, the United States Geological Survey reports.

At least two people have been killed and more than 240 injured, Reuters reported.

Strong shaking was reportedly felt as far as the Iraqi capital of Baghdad.

An emergency crisis center has been set up in the city of Javanrud to reach out to badly hit areas.

Weather conditions for any cleanup and recovery efforts over the next few days will be seasonably hot and dry. No rain is expected to hinder anyone from helping the affected.

Temperatures will rise to around 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) each afternoon, and some locations near the earthquake area could be even warmer.
