Extramarital sex fuels earthquakes: Senior Iran cleric
Apr 17, 2010 TEHRAN
A senior Iranian cleric has claimed that dolled-up women incite extramarital sex, causing more earthquakes in Iran, a country that straddles several fault lines, newspapers reported on Saturday.
"Many women who dress inappropriately ... cause youths to go astray, taint their chastity and incite extramarital sex in society, which increases earthquakes," Ayatollah Kazem Sedighi told worshippers at Tehran Friday prayer.
"Calamities are the result of people's deeds," he was quoted as saying by reformist Aftab-e Yazd newspaper. "We have no way but conform to Islam to ward off dangers."
The Islamic dress code is mandatory in Iran, which has been under clerical rule for more than three decades.
Every post-pubescent woman regardless of her religion or nationality must cover her hair and bodily contours in public. Offenders face punishment and fine.
But this has not stopped urban women from appearing in the streets wearing tight coats and flimsy headscarves and layers of skillfully applied makeup.
Iran is prone to frequent quakes, many of which have been devastating.
The worst in recent times hit the southern city of Bam in December 2003, killing 31,000 people -- about a quarter of the population -- and destroying its ancient mud-built citadel.
Quakes hit northeast Iran injure 170

Many people spent the night outdoors in the city's parks fearing aftershocks.

Earthquakes are common in Iran. In 2003 about 30,000 people were killed in a quake that devastated the southeastern city of Bam.

Unusual Swarm of 40++ Earthquakes in Strait of Hurmuz (Gulf of Aden) Yemen May Mean Trouble
There has been a tremendous number of earthquakes that began early during 14-Nov, 0630 UTC, and are ongoing at this moment.
More than 30 moderate earthquakes ranging from magnitude 4.5 to 5.4 have rattled under the sea where the Gulf of Aden and the Red Sea meet at a point off of Yemen.
The depths have been mostly around 10 km, with a few deeper.
A closer look reveals something that appears highly unusual. That is, so far at least 20 of the earthquakes have been at a depth of exactly 10.0 km. I mean, exactly. What are the odds of that, spread across the affected region?
This earthquake swarm is occurring right now, and is happening right in the middle of major oil and freight transit sea lanes, the busiest in the world.

Multiple earthquakes off Yemen coast
Nov. 15, 2010 SANAA, Nov. 14
A flurry of earthquakes, up to 5.0 magnitude, were reported off the coast of Yemen, Djibouti and Eritrea on Sunday, according to seismologists.
The first quake was reported at 07:34 AM, 120km north east of the Djibouti coast on Sunday morning.
An unusual series of aftershocks followed including a 4.5 magnitude quake in an unpopulated area of Lahij governorate, according to The Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System.
In total up to 17 quakes were registered off the cost of Yemen by the United States Geological Survey. According to the US government’s scientific agency depths ranged from 9.9 km to 13.2 km.
The surface of the Earth is broken into six or seven major plates.
The Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden were formed as the Arabian plate separated from Africa, a process, which began 56 to 34 million years ago.
Across both the Gulf of Aden mid-ocean ridge system and the southernmost part of the Red Sea the plates are moving, not only apart but also sliding past each other.
Geologists believe the Red Sea is still widening and in time will become an ocean.
The East African Rift System, the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden form what’s know as the ‘Afar triple junction’ the centre of Sunday’s swarm of earthquakes.

Iran quake toll climbs many buried
December 21, 2010 The death toll from a magnitude-6.5 earthquake in southeastern Iran rose to 7, with officials fearing that it will continue to climb, state-run Press TV said Tuesday.
Felt as far away as the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, the quake was particularly strong between the cities of Zahedan and Bam.
It struck late at night and hardest in mostly rural, relatively sparsely populated areas of Kerman province, officials said.

Citing eyewitnesses, another state-run news agency IRNA reported that scores of people are trapped in debris of buildings that have been destroyed. Many such sites are in hard-to-reach locations, making any rescue operations even more difficult.
Additionally, at least 7 aftershocks struck in the four hours since the 6.5-magnitude quake hit at 10:12 p.m. Monday night, according to the Iranian Seismological Center, based at the University of Tehran, and the U.S. Geological Survey.
