It’s one to watch…Is a major quake about to hit the Iran-Iraq border as more than 100 small to large quakes have hit the area in the last eleven hours, with 17 of them in the mag 5+ range with the biggest recorded at mag 5.5.
The Big Wobble has been keeping an eye on Iran since the magnitude 7.3 struck in November which killed 350 people and injuring 4,000.
It is one of the most active quake areas in the world and Iran also has 5 nuclear sites and 3 research reactors with the Bushehr nuclear site actually built right on top of a tectonic fault line, it is an accident waiting to happen.
Iran was struck by three more big quakes when a mag 6.0 and two magnitude 5.1 aftershocks rocked the Bushehr Nuclear site, which actually sits on a fault line.
Two weeks later another mag 6.0 -struck 64km NNE of Kerman, Iran smack in the middle of three uranium mines and the Bushehr nuclear site.
