TEHRAN, Iran A 6.2-magnitude earthquake killed at least 87 people and injured over 400 others in northwestern Iran on Saturday, state TV said.

Iran's main news channel said the quake hit the towns of Ahar, Haris and Varzaqan in East Azerbaijan province at 4:53 p.m. local time (GMT 12:23), also damaging hundreds of homes.

The TV quoted Khalil Saei, local Crisis Committee chief, as saying that 30 people were killed in Ahar, 40 in Varzaqan and 17 others in Haris.

The broadcast said at least 60 villages sustained damage ranging from 50 to 80 percent, while 4 other villages had been totally leveled to the ground.

The TV said at least three aftershocks measuring 6.0, 4.7 and 4.1 jolted the same area and were felt in a wide region near the Caspian Sea.

Iran is located on seismic fault lines and is prone to earthquakes. It experiences at least one earthquake every day on average, although the vast majority are so small they go unnoticed.

You can bet the Government has a hand in making these earthquakes.

This earthquake reporting is getting quite tiresome! What is so prophetic about an earthquake in an earthquake prone area located on a seismic fault? It rained today in Greene County! Beware of things falling from the sky! You are an idiot, why don't you put your energies into what is going on in your own community, instead of being a "chicken little".

It is so weird that there is this increase in earthquakes, tornadoes and hurricanes and yet both FEMA and the Red Cross have to continue issuing warnings to residents and business owners that it's a good idea to throw together an emergency, 72-hour, kit. We did two of these kits cheap. One we put together from trips to Home Depot and Walmart, and the other we ordered from Quake Safe Kits. All together it costs less than a hundred and fifty bucks, but (by and large) your average US resident can't be bothered to put one together. I live in Portland, and the most recent reports say that we can expect a mag 7 to 8 within the next ten years.

It honestly worries me that people like you have access to the internet. Just stop. Several earthquakes occur every day, in varying degrees of severity. It has been happening since the beginning of time.

Yes, it's horrible when people are injured or killed. And yes, it's important to be prepared in case it does happen where you live. But it's very stupid and equally annoying to get so worked up and report every little thing that happens.
