A very strong quake at 7.3 magnitude
hit Iran-Iraq border on November 12.
At least 140 people died
and a lot more injured
when buildings and structures collapsed
prompting officials to urge citizens
to stay away from buildings
and not to use the elevators.
The quake was felt as far away
as Pakistan, Lebanon,
Kuwait and Turkey.
Dozens or even hundreds
are believed trapped under rubble.
According to US Geological Survey,
the temblor centered
about 350 kilometers (217 miles)
north of Baghdad
and was felt throughout Iraq.
Images from the earthquake
are already posted
on social media
and netizens are horrified
of the aftermath.
