A moderate earthquake measuring 5.2 on Richter scale reportedly shook the vicinity of Dorz, a village in Larestan County in the southern Iranian province of Fars, on Tuesday morning.

Citing the director-general of the crisis management office of the province, IRNA reports that the quake occurred at 09:35 am local time (0605 GMT).

Khalil Abdollahi told IRNA today morning that the rescue and investigation teams had been dispatched to the region.

Tuesday’s tremor reportedly was centered about 111 kilometers northwest of Bandar Abbas at a depth of 10 kilometers.

Crisis24 says moderate shaking was probably felt near the epicenter, as well as light shaking throughout parts of southern Iran, far northeastern UAE, and Musandam Governorate in Oman.

No damage or injured was reported, according to Crisis24.    

IRNA reports that in a related development, a 5.9-magnitude earthquake jolted Khoy, northwestern Iran, in late January.  Three were killed, over 1,000 were injured and thousands of people saw their homes and properties damaged in the quake.
