Three earthquakes hit eastern Iran in quick succession early Friday, the first a fairly strong magnitude 6.0 tremor that struck at a shallow depth close to the populous city of Kerman, the US Geological Survey said.

The USGS initially reported the natural disaster as a 4.4 magnitude.

A magnitude 4.1 natural disaster hit DE on Thursday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

USGS Geophysicist Rafael Abreu said the natural disaster could be felt as far at 275 miles from the epicenter.

There have been no reports of damage or casualties, and it appears most of the shaking was relatively minor.

NEIC geophysicist John Bellini, located at the office in Golden Colo., said the quake originated six miles east/northeast of Dover, Del.
