TEHRAN – Two quakes measuring 5.2 and 4.2 on the Richter scale hit Iran’s southeastern province of Kerman early Thursday, but there were no immediate reports of casualties or serious material damage.

The official news agency IRNA said the first quake, measuring 4.2, hit the town of Zarand at 4:51 am (01:21 GMT). A local official there reported no damage or injuries.

The second tremor of 5.2 on the open-ended Richter scale hit the town of Ravar at 5:58 am (02:29 GMT), and an official there also said there were no immediate reports of damage or casualties.

Iran is criss-crossed by seismological faults, and tremors and quakes are an almost daily occurrence.
