Just 23 minutes ago, a 4.1-magnitude earthquake struck near the town of Dāmghān, Iran. The tremor was recorded early afternoon on Saturday 21 November 2020 at 2.10 pm local time, at a shallow depth of 10 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the Iranian Seismological Center (IRSC), the first seismological agency to report it.
