Those who lost their homes in the quake hit areas of Varzaghan and Ahar in Iran's northwestern province of Azarbaijan now have to deal with the cold and snow. This has created more hardship for the quake victims who are still living in tents.

Meanwhile more quakes have been hitting the area causing more damage. According to ISNA, a 4.9 quake on Wednesday destroyed three village houses and caused panic among the people some of whom needed to receive medical attention. Varzaghan governor told the ISNA reporter that the quake victims are in need of blankets and warm clothing to cope with the cold.
