A local official in the area told ISNA that six villages had been completely destroyed and 60 villages had been 50 to 70 percent destroyed.
The U.S. Geological Survey measured the first quake at 6.4 magnitude and said it struck 60 km (37 miles) northeast of the city of Tabriz at a depth of 9.9 km (6.2 miles). A second quake measuring 6.3 struck 49 km (30 miles) northeast of Tabriz 11 minutes later at a similar depth.
The second quake struck near the town of Varzgan, Fars news agency said. "The quake was so intense that people poured into the streets through fear," it said.

I’m still hoping for some unreported tunnel collapses....
Preferably the ones containing the nuke factories!
Hmm...a bit too far from Tehran....
