An hour ago, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported a magnitude 5.0 earthquake 34 km northeast of Bandar-e Genāveh, Bushehr, Iran at a depth of 10km.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might revised later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their report.

Based on preliminary data the earthquake was most likely felt by a lot of people located close to the epicenter. Weak shaking was most likely felt in Bandar-e Genāveh (pop. 52,800) located 34 km from the epicenter, Dogonbadan (pop. 94,600) located 67 km from the epicenter, Borazjan (pop. 86,100) 68 km away, Kāzerūn (pop. 94,500) 84 km away, Buschehr (pop. 165,400) 88 km away, and Buschehr (pop. 165,400) 88 km away.
