(CNN)Iranian President Hassan Rouhani traveled Tuesday to the areas worst hit by Sunday's devastating earthquake, where some residents say they are struggling to cope without basic necessities.

At least 452 people were killed and thousands injured after a powerful 7.3-magnitude quake struck in the remote border area between Iran and Iraq. The earthquake is the deadliest of the year, eclipsing the one that hit Mexico City in September, and was felt as far away as Turkey and Pakistan.
