Earthquake Strikes Town in Iran Near Nuclear Plant


quakeAn earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.6 has struck a town in southern Iran near a nuclear power plant.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the temblor struck Thursday afternoon some 14 kilometers (8.7 miles) northeast of Borazjan town. That town is some 48 kilometers (30 miles) north of the port city of Bushehr, home of the Bushehr nuclear power plant.

A report about the earthquake by the official IRNA news agency gave no details about casualties nor if there was any damage. In April, a 6.1-magnitude earthquake killed at least 37 people and injured hundreds in a town near Bushehr. The nuclear plant wasn’t damaged then.

Iran sits on a series of faults. It experiences minor quakes once a day on average.



  1. The mother of all earthquakes is coming soon to Iran. The nuclear plants that they built for their enemy will engulf the whole country in flames.Remember Haman and Amalek y”s.

  2. Any chance the Iranians put a reactor on a fault line (okay, the Israelis apparently did as well, and the Californians do so all the time)?

    Any chance the Mossad has discovered a way to manipute tectonic plates?
