Officials in Kermanshah province confirmed that two people were killed and at least 310 more have been injured after a 6.0-magnitude earthquake hit the province on Saturday, August 25. Recovery efforts continued in the city into Sunday, August 26. According to local reports, two aftershocks above a magnitude of 3.0 on the Richter scale have been recorded following the initial quake. Details are still emerging. Additional aftershocks are possible in the coming hours and days. 


The earthquake struck 30 km (19 mi) southwest of the city of Javanrud (Kermanshah province). Iran is located in a highly active seismic zone and earthquakes are common. Notably, in November 2017 a 7.3-magnitude earthquake struck near the Iran-Iraq border, leaving at least 620 people dead and thousands of others injured.


Individuals present in the affected regions are advised to be prepared for aftershocks and to adhere to any instructions issued by local authorities.

In the event of aftershocks, individuals are advised to protect themselves as much as possible from falling debris if indoors (e.g. under a table), to move away from windows, and to not attempt to leave the building unless there is an immediate danger. If outdoors, move away from tall buildings, utility wires, and streetlights.
