Hundreds feared dead as 7.8-magnitude quake hits Iran
Tremors felt in Saudi EP, other Gulf states, India

"This quake also shook tall buildings in India's capital New Delhi, sending people running into the streets, witnesses said. People also evacuated buildings in Qatar and Dubai, residents said. Reports also say tremors were felt in Riyadh, Dammam and Al-Khobar in the Kingdom's Eastern Province, as well as in Kuwait."

I didn't feel it in Dhahran, but a student said it caused damage in Hofuf.

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you're around
