A 5.1 magnitude earthquake shook Iran’s Qeshm Island in the Strait of Hormuz on Tuesday at 10 am (0430 GMT), the U.S. Geological Survey reported. The tremor was felt as far away as Dubai. The epicenter was 66 kilometers (41 miles) south of the island. IRNA, the Iranian official news agency, later reported the quake’s magnitude slightly higher at 5.2 and said there were no reports of casualties.
