"Aftershocks are a possibility with this quake", said Caruso.

"For the moment, no deaths have been reported but there has been destruction in several villages", Hossein-Ali Mehrabizadeh, an official with the crisis unit in Kerman, told state television.

That quake, which occurred on August 23, forced the shutdown of the Washington Monument due to damage.

Carberry said there were no signs of damage at the base, and no change in operations was expected.

The USGS downgraded the quake from a 5.1 to a 4.4 on the Richter scale.

This 4.4 was the most powerful natural disaster in the last six months.
