Shallow 6.3 magnitude earthquake strikes southern Iran, near nuclear plant: 37 dead

Iran 4 9
April 9, 2013TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s state TV is reporting that a 6.3 magnitude earthquake has jolted a town in the country’s south. The Tuesday report by the English-language channel Press TV says the earthquake struck Khormooj some 80 kilometers southeast of Bushehr, the home of Iran’s first nuclear power plant. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage. Another report by semi-official Fars news agency says fearful residents poured into the streets. The quake was felt across the Gulf in Bahrain and Qatar, where workers were evacuated from high-rise buildings as a precaution. Earlier on Sunday a lighter earthquake jolted Khormooj. Iran is located on seismic faults and it experiences daily light earthquakes. In 2003, some 26,000 people were killed by a 6.6 magnitude quake that flattened the historic southeastern city of Bam. –G
Quake strikes near nuclear plant: A 6.3 magnitude earthquake has struck in south-west Iran, not far from the country’s only nuclear power station, the US Geological Survey (USGS) says. Initial reports on state media say 37 people have died. Posts on social media in the region said people felt the quake across the Gulf in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Bahrain. Iran’s nuclear program has roused concern among major powers that Tehran wants to build nuclear weapons – a charge Iran strongly denies. The USGS said the quake struck at 11:52 GMT at a depth of 10km (6.2 miles), some 90km from Bushehr city, near to the power plant. Iran’s seismological centre in Bushehr province, linked to Tehran University, registered a 6.1 magnitude quake close to the town of Kaki, some 60 miles south of Bushehr. More than five aftershocks have been felt so far, the strongest measuring a magnitude of 5.4. The Russian contractor which built the Bushehr plant says it has not been affected by the earthquake, says Russian news agency Interfax. Staff at the complex felt the jolts but continue to work as usual, while radiation levels have not changed, an unnamed Atomstroyexport official told Interfax. –BBC

    Could this MAJOR quake have been triggered by HAARP Alvin?

    • I do not believe this had anything to do with HAARP. Iran is riddled with some of the most dangerous faults in the world. The Bible tells us the wise build their house on the rock and the foolish build houses on the sand, however; it’s nothing short of madness that humans would build a nuclear plant (Bushehr) in one of the most hazardous seismic regions on the planet. Fukushima in Japan, Diablo Canyon, ect. Iran stradles the Eurasian and Arabian plates, and when these earthchanges intensify, everything baneful secreted in the Earth will be thrown open, when the ground convulses. There is something in the world more dangerous in the world than HAARP; it’s karma.
