7.8 is strong as hell. I have no clue as to how populous the region is.

It was apparently felt far away. I expect the number of casualties to rise quite a bit. They don't build the sturdiest of houses in that region I believe. sad2.gif

Quote:Offices were evacuated in Abu Dhabi and tall buildings swayed in the Indian capital Delhi, witnesses said.

Iranian state TV has reported at least 40 people killed although one official says he fears hundreds have died.
