On November 8, 2019, in NW Iran, an earthquake of magnitude 5.9 (Mw) devastated the northwest of Mianeh City (in Torkamanchai Area) with extensive damage, especially in old structures. Based on historical evidence, this area had been experienced another earthquake in 426 years ago (1593 AD, M=6, I0=VIII). The day after the quake, a team of GSI Northwest branch and the Seismotectonics and Seismology Department of Geological Survey of Iran started surveying geological features of the event.
