Lo mlilo uqale ngabo-2: 25 ekuseni kanti abezicishamlilo bazame ukuwulawula, kubika abezindaba abakwa-Fars.

Kodwa imizamo yabo yokonga umkhumbi wamamitha angama-207 yehlulekile.

Umkhumbi wempi, owawuse-Gulf of Oman, wacwila ogwini lase-Iranian i-Jasknear.

Abezindaba zoMbuso babike ukuthi abasebenzi abangama-400 abebesemkhunjini bahlengiwe, kwathi abangama-33 balimala.

Akukho bantu abashonile noma abalahlekile abebesemkhunjini ababikiwe.

Izithombe zisabalale ku-inthanethi zikhombisa amalungu abasebenzi egqoke amajakhethi empilo futhi entanta emanzini ezungeze umkhumbi, njengoba intuthu inyuka ngaphezu kwabo.

Lo mlilo uqinisekiswe yi-US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, ama-satillite ayo akwazile ukulandelela imililo esemkhathini.

Izikhulu zase-Iran azikachazi ukuthi yini imbangela yomlilo, kepha zimemezele ukuthi uphenyo seluqalile.
