Earthquakes Hit Iran

Iran has been hit by a magnitude 5.7 - 6.0 earthquake. and aftershocks.

At least 66 people are dead after an earthquake and aftershocks razed villages in western Iran early Friday, and the death toll was growing. Hundreds of people are injured.


This is no where near the severity of the quake that destroyed Bam, but it, like all disasters, does give the US an opportunity. One thing we appear to do well (except at home) is respond to natural disasters. I hope the administration see the wisdom in offering aid and assistance as needed. Even if it is declined, there will still be a positive impact on the population of that nation.
