Tremors felt in Erbil as 5.5 magnitude natural disaster hits Kermanshah

Data from the USA natural hazards agency, which collects seismic activity from around the world, also detail two 4.3 magnitude earthquakes in the Diyala region, Iraq, close to the town of Mandali.

The U.S. Geological Survey says three earthquakes with a magnitude of around 5 have struck along the Iran-Iraq border.

A series of eight earthquakes has hit the Iran-Iraq border area and rattled Baghdad, apparent aftershocks of a temblor that struck the mountainous region in November and killed over 530 people.

A magnitude 7.3 natural disaster in the same area in mid-November killed at least 530 and injured more than 8000.

The epicenter of the quake was 31 km west of Kerinshah at a depth of 10 km.
