Magnitude-4.4 quake hits Bushehr nuclear plant, which is currently Iran’s only operational plant.
A 4.4 magnitude earthquake struck just 110 kilometers (70 miles) northwest of Iran’s Bushehr on Monday morning, rattling the Islamic regime’s only operational nuclear plant.
No damage or injuries were initially reported, according to the Associated Press.
The center of the earthquake was located in the town of Emam Hassan, reported by Iran’s official IRNA news agency, and the shaking began around 4:30 a.m. local time.
The Bushehr plant is built to hold up even in earthquakes up to a magnitude of 8 on the Richter scale.
It was built with Russian aid and became operational in 2011.
