A 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck northeast of Baghdad Sunday evening.

The tremors were felt in Iraq, Kuwait, and northern Iran. The quake hit the Iran-Iraq border region and had a depth of 10 kilometers, according to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC).

The EMSC reported that the quake was widely felt more than 500 kilometers away from its epicenter.

People took to social media to share different videos and pictures of the quake.

Pir Hossein Kolivand, the head of Iran’s emergency department, said at least 70 people were injured in the quake, reported the Associated Press.

Iran is located on major seismic faults and experiences an earthquake per day on average.
