Times reports at least 7,370 were injured in Iran, along with an additional 535 people in Iraq. The Times reports photos from the region show collapsed buildings, destroyed cars, and people sleeping in the streets for fear of aftershocks. According to the Guardian, the Iranian Red Crescent indicated more than 70,000 people are in need of emergency shelter as a result of the earthquake. Electricity has been cut off in some Iranian and Iraqi cities because of the potential for aftershocks. A hospital near Darbandikhan was damaged and had no power, which was the hardest hit area on the Iraqi side of the border.
