Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant Not Damaged
The 6.3 magnitude earthquake that struck Bushehr province on Iran’s Persian Gulf coast (see the map below) left at least 37 people dead and more than 850 injured and destroyed many buildings. Shocks from the quake were felt across the Gulf in Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and the UAE. Fortunately, there were no reports of damage to Bushehr nuclear power plant located 50 miles from the epicenter of the quake.
