A strong earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 hit Iran causing severe damage. The impact of the earthquake had been so strong that the tremors were felt in Dubai. The tremors had caused a panic in the country and as precautions some buildings were evacuated. But after investigations the authorities reported of no injuries or any kind of structural damage been caused.
The building structure of Dubai has been built in a way that it can support earthquake tremors of 5.5 magnitudes, and the tremors that were felt were below their set standards. Kiran Kidwai – International Desk, NMTV
