Earthquake hits southeastern Iran

It seems to me that we are having an abundant amount of stronger than what is considered to be normal seismic activity around the globe. Is there something going on here? Are they all connected in some way?

Upcoming changes on this planet are escalating faster and faster, Earthquake in California, mudslide, now Iran, a week ago elsewhere I forgot (Asia somewhere I believe). Maybe terrorism will be the least of our problems when natural disasters go into overdrive...

I know earthquakes can happen anywhere, but how common are these in Iran? I wouldve thought these wouldnt be very common in that area. Im no geologist though.

There where a few...

"Iran is one of the world's most quake-prone regions. Since 1990, more than 41,000 people have been killed in three major earthquakes there."

Reports out now state that 10,000 could be dead. This is a major quake.

unfortunately we have no control over mother nature.
With all this activity, I bet the Gaia theorists are having a field day!

17 August 1999: TURKEY - More than 17,800 people were killed by a quake measuring 7.4.

Here is a link to some pretty bad recent earthquakes.
Seems the Mid-east gets some major ones.

Seems that this quake in Iran beat the Turkey one by fatalities.

Iran Appeals for Help After Killer Quake
Estimated Death Toll of 20,000 Could Eventually Double, Rescuers Say

BAM, Iran (Dec. 27) - Overwhelmed rescue crews picked through entire city blocks of rubble in search for survivors and bodies a day after an earthquake ruined this southeast Iranian city. With the death toll in the thousands, Iran appealed for international help and promised to waive visas for foreign relief workers.

The scope of the tragedy was so vast that a reliable death toll was impossible to pin down so soon after the magnitude 6.5 quake hit Bam early Friday. The Interior Ministry's early estimate on Saturday was 20,000 dead, while two leading rescue officials said the toll could eventually double.
