25th September 1903 occcurred in a semi-desertic region, just south of the
Dorimeli fault; it had a magnitude of about 6.5, it was felt within an area
of 200,000 square kilometres and it was followed by aftershocks for at least
13 weeks. The earthquake killed about 350 people within an area which
extended from Turshiz to the Kavir in the southwest. There is no evidence
that the earthquake was associated with faulting, but it did cause a temporary
change in the flow of underground water.
