There are no immediate reports of casualties or damage.

The 5.9-magnitude quake struck at 1:17 am (2247 GMT Thursday) about 120 kilometres (75 miles) southeast of the city of Tabriz, in East Azerbaijan province, the Iranian Seismological Centre said.

Five people died and 120 were injured in the natural disaster on Friday.

Ventura lies about 70 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles.

As well as killing five people, the quake injured 312 - though only a dozen or more of them required treatment in hospital.

The incident was followed by more than 60 aftershocks, causing people to stay outdoors in the middle of night.

Iran sits where two major tectonic plates meet and experiences frequent seismic activity.

Provincial governor, Mohammad-Reza Pourmohammadi, told local media that at least 30 houses had been destroyed. Around noon, emergency teams distributed survival kits, stoves, blankets and tents in 78 villages.

"Okay... now experience a reasonable quake right here in Ventura", wrote 1 person on Twitter.

According to the US Geological Survey, the epicentre of the natural disaster was at a depth of 10km, although Iran's Seismological Center said it was at a depth of 8km. In 2003, a magnitude 6.6 quake in Kerman province killed 31,000 people and flattened the ancient city of Bam. Let me tell you, a 5 magnitude quake can cause a lot of damage, although no casualties have occurred here during this time.
