Iranian state-run TV says at least 40 people died after a powerful earthquake rocked the Iran-Pakistan border region on Tuesday.

A Pakistani official put the death toll in that country at 34 dead and 80 injured.

The initial magnitude registered at 7.8 and occurred inside of Iran.  There were no immediate reports of damage.

Tremors were felt across the region and as far away as New Delhi and Gulf cities of Dubai and Bahrain.

Across the Gulf, high-rise buildings swayed and officials ordered evacuations.

The United States Geological Survey estimated the epicenter was:

  • 86 km (53 mi) ESE of Khash, Iran
  • 167 km (103 mi) NE of Iranshahr, Iran
  • 199 km (123 mi) SE of Zahedan, Iran
  • 237 km (146 mi) SSW of Rudbar, Afghanistan
  • 603 km (373 mi) NE of Muscat, Oman
