Over the weekend, a devastating earthquake rocked the Iran-Iraq border. It was “the deadliest in the world this year,” with more than 400 people left dead and thousands injured. Major news outlets are reporting that the Iran-Iraq earthquake was a 7.3 magnitude. According to News, an area known as the Kermanshah province suffered the most destruction. The impact, however, was “felt as far west as the Mediterranean coast.”
