There has been a major earthquake in northern Iran. USGS has two earthquakes recorded, a magnitude 6.3 and a 6.4. Here are the links for the relevant information BBC | USGS
OSM Perma link to the 6.4 epicenter (the 6.3 is right near here too)
There is good imagery for the majority of the affected area and a lot needing to be traced. I will be starting right at the epicenter and working my way out from there, starting with roads and then going on to buildings. BBC says that several small villages have been completely destroyed so mapping buildings in these areas will help responders with damage assessments.
