Mohammad-Hassan Qowsian-Moqaddam told the IRNA correspondent in Hormuzgan province that the initial relief and rescue operations have completed and four neighboring provinces are in full alert status.

He said that the IRSC warehouses are in a good condition and the IRSC is in a good condition for heeding this responsibility completely.
