Residents in different parts of the United Arab Emirates, including Dubai, reported feeling tremors after an earthquake struck Iran on Saturday.
The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM), in a statement said that while the earthquake was felt by residents, it was “without any effect” in the UAE.
Iranian state media said two strong earthquakes struck Iran’s southern Hormozgan province on the Gulf, prompting authorities to deploy search and rescue teams to the affected areas.
The quakes reportedly had magnitudes of 5.7 and 5.8. The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) said one earthquake had a magnitude of 5.5.
