Earthquake Report comment :
Monday’s earthquake in Southern Iran did become another black page in Iran’s natural disaster history.
Iran’s Press TV has reported on Monday that a man working on a well fell to his death when the 6.1-magnitude jolted the region at 14:53 (1122 GMT) on Monday, Mehr News Agency reported.

Villages near the quake’s center are believed to have been hit worst by the natural disaster and several areas of the region have reported power outages, a provincial crisis authority said.

Iran is not publishing a lot of details on what is happening in the aftermath of natural disasters.
