Aftershock in East Azerbaijan
A moderate earthquake struck Iranian Province East Azerbaijan this afternoon. USGS gives M 4,8 and a depth of 18 km for this quake. The epicenter lays 66 km northeast of Tabris, where two devasting earthquakes on August 11th 2012 killed more than 300 people.
For this aftershock we can not exclude minor to moderate damage, which is normal if such a quake occurs in Iran,  although similar aftershocks last year were harmless. So far, we have got no information from there.
Update: Rescue teams were sent to this area. Telephone lines were disconnected by the earthquake, so that there is currently no possibility to contact the epicenter area.
Update 17.35 UTC: At least two people were injured by the earthquake. Some houses in their village Shahsavar were damaged.(Still no detailed information) There are some other villages where we still have no information about damage or injuries.
Update 18.19 UTC: New reports say there were at least 6 people injured in village Shahsavar. They were carried to medical centers by the Red Crescent rescue team. No details about damage in this and other villages so far.
Update 18.36 UTC: The number of injuries is increasing with every new report. Now there are at least 10 injured persons comfirmed.
6 ot them were injured due to the stress and panic. The others were injured while running out of their houses. 7 of them were from Shahsavar village. They all were taken to a hostital in Tabris.
There are still no reports of any major damage. There were some damaged houses in Shahsavar and also some minor damages in Tabris. No information from the other villages so far.
Update Jan. 27th: Final reports from Iran say that 34 people were injured by this earthquake. 23 had to go to hostitals in Tabris and Heris. 11 of them(in Tabris and Heris) had a nervous breakdown of problems with blood pressure due to the panic. 13 were injured while running out of their houses. (10 of them came from Shahsavar village). The other 10 had only minor injuries,(also caused by panic, fleeing, etc.) they were treated outpatient.
Small aftershocks continue to rattle this area. Most people don’t go back into their homes yet.
Besides to some minor damage to houses reported earlier there were no more damage.

Moderate shallow earthquake in Madagascarintensity
A very rare M 5,3 earthquake hit southern Madagascar yesterday at 23.37 UTC and today 2.37 local time. It had a shallow depth of only 14 km. The epicenter lays a few kilometers offshore a relatively strong populated coastline, 28 km south of Toliara (pop. 115 000). USGS ShakeMap gives Intensity VI for the closest towns and MMI V for Toliara. Due to this very unusual high intensity for Madagascar, where earthquakes like this only happen once a decade, we expect at least minor damage in the closest towns.
In USGS database there are no information of any known damaging earthquake in Madagascar ever, so we have no base to compare this quake to earlier quakes.
So far, there are no information about this earthquake in general in local press. We’ll go on searching for information and write an update if necessary.

    People :
    Generally felt outside, and by almost everyone indoors. Most sleepers awakened. A few people alarmed.
    Fittings :
    Small unstable objects are displaced or upset. Some glassware and crockery may be broken. Hanging pictures knock against the wall. Open doors may swing. Cupboard doors secured by magnetic catches may open. Pendulum clocks stop, start, or change rate.
    Structures :
    Some large display windows cracked. A few earthenware toilet fixtures cracked.
    MMI VI (Strong shaking) ?
    People Felt by all. People and animals alarmed. Many run outside. Difficulty experienced in walking steadily.
    Fittings :
    Objects fall from shelves. Pictures fall from walls. Some furniture moved on smooth floors, some unsecured free-standing fireplaces moved. Glassware and crockery broken. Very unstable furniture overturned. Small church and school bells ring. Appliances move on bench or table tops. Filing cabinets or "easy glide" drawers may open (or shut).
    Structures :
    Slight damage to buildings with low standard. Some stucco or cement plaster falls. Large display windows broken. Damage to a few weak domestic chimneys, some may fall.
    Environment :
    Trees and bushes shake, or are heard to rustle. Loose material may be dislodged from sloping ground, e.g. existing slides, talus slopes, shingle slides.
    MMI VII (Very strong shaking) ?
    People
    General alarm. Difficulty experienced in standing. Noticed by motorcar drivers who may stop.
    Fittings :
    Large bells ring. Furniture moves on smooth floors, may move on carpeted floors. Substantial damage to fragile contents of buildings.
    Structures :
    Unreinforced stone and brick walls cracked. Low standard buildings cracked with some minor masonry falls. A few instances of damage to buildings of ordinary workmanship. Unbraced parapets, unbraced brick gables, and architectural ornaments fall. Roofing tiles, especially ridge tiles may be dislodged. Many unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, often falling from roof-line. Water tanks Type I burst. A few instances of damage to brick veneers and plaster or cement-based linings. 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.
