Small earthquake hits Tbilisi, Georgia
A small M 3,1 quake hit Tbilisi, capital of Georgia this evening. As the seismological center of Georgia reports, the epicenter lays in the eastern part of the town. The earthquake had a shallow depth of only 1 km. Due to this the quake was relatively strongly felt close to the epicenter, but there won’t be any damage.

Moderate earthquake in Afghanistan
The earthquake was reported with a Magnitude of M5.3 but luckily at a depth of 57 km. This depth cannot be called dangerous if the seismological data are correct (EMSC and USGS are reporting nearly similar depths).
We will follow up this earthquake and will write Updates if necessary.
4km (15mi) NNE of Baghlan, Afghanistan, 39km (24mi) NW of Nahrin, Afghanistan and 44km (27mi) S of Kunduz, Afghanistan
47,000 people are living within a radius of 10 km from the epicenter (epicenter location has always an error margin)

Moderate but shallow earthquake in Iran
A moderate M 4,9 earthquake hit western Iranian province Lorestan on 11.12 UTC today. Iranian Seismological Center is reporting a depth of only 7 km.(USGS: M 4,8 and a depth of 50 km which would be much more harmless) The epicenter lays only 37 km east of Khorramabad (pop. 328.000), the capital of Lorestan. People in this area felt a strong shaking, running out of their houses in panic. The gouvernment sent rescue teams to the epicenter area to check buildings for damage and help possible injuries.
So far, we have got no information about any kind of damage. But based on historical data we see a high potential for, at least, small damage.
Update 16.35 UTC: First reports of the “Red Crescent” from the earthquake region say that the earthquake caused damage in five small villages around the epicenter. In four of them, 60 per cent of the houses were mainly slightly damaged. 2 houses were completely destroyed.
The collapse of one house caused two minor injuries, an old man and a young child who got superficial wounds and were sent to hospital. 18 workers of “Red Crencent” rescue team have established a tent camp for the homeless people.
There are no reports of damage from Khorramabad itself.

Unrestrained water cylinders (hot-water cylinders) may move and leak. Some common windows cracked. Suspended ceilings damaged.
    Environment :
    Water made turbid by stirred up mud. Small slides such as falls of sand and gravel banks, and small rock-falls from steep slopes and cuttings. Instances of settlement of unconsolidated or wet, or weak soils. Some fine cracks appear in sloping ground. A few instances of liquefaction (i.e. small water and sand ejections).
    MMI VIII (Severe shaking) ?
    People Alarm may approach panic. Steering of motorcars greatly affected. Structures : Low standard buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. ordinary workmanship buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged in some cases. A few instances of damage to buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes. Monuments and pre-1976 elevated tanks and factory stacks twisted or brought down. Some pre-1965 infill masonry panels damaged. A few post-1980 brick veneers damaged. Decayed timber piles of houses damaged. Houses not secured to foundations may move. Most unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, some below roof-line, many brought down. Environment : Cracks appear on steep slopes and in wet ground. Small to moderate slides in roadside cuttings and unsupported excavations. Small water and sand ejections and localized lateral spreading adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged. Damage or permanent distortion to some buildings and bridges, designed and built to normal use standards. Houses not secured to foundations shifted off. Brick veneers fall and expose frames. Environment : Cracking of ground conspicuous. Landsliding general on steep slopes. Liquefaction effects intensified and more widespread, with large lateral spreading and flow sliding adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
