Looks like a 6.1 quake has hit Iran. Could it possibly be a nuclear test?

Either that or the LHC has opened a black hole already....

What seems a little unnerving is the location of the epicentre..



..right on the shoreline of the Hormuz Straits!

Or how about a 3rd possibility. That it's a naturally occurring earthquake that is quite strong and probably caused lots of damage, injuries and possible deaths. I fail to see how that could be funny, so why the
???

A little update I just found...


TEHRAN, Iran - A strong earthquake rocked southern Iran Wednesday, sending tremors across the Persian Gulf.

State television reported three people were killed and 22 injured. The country's seismological centre said a magnitude 6 quake struck at 3:15 p.m., with the epicentre 1,350 kilometres south of the capital Tehran, in the region of Bandar Abbas.


Earthquake in Iran

Luckily, although felt in Dubai, there are no reports of damage or injuries.

with all the usa/israel to attack iran in next weeks/days, then this happens you know where a bunch of topics are going to go with this

although iran did threaten if israel/usa attacked israel would burn in a hail of missles and serious problems would exist for anyone trying to use the straight of hormuz the main route for getting oil out of the area

could underground nuke testing produce shakes like that if used in a reasonably unstable quake zone?

Just let us play our Haarp in peace.....

Lesson learned? we will see soon enough. What more devastating weapon could there be that leaves no fingerprints?

May be russia and china need another song too. And anyone else that gets out of hand.

the epicenter of this earthquake is on a large fault - iran experiences earthquakes daily so this is nothing new to them. this one was just larger, not a conspiracy, just nature.
