Location and user reports for this morning's magnitude 4.2 quake in Greece
A earthquake of magnitude 4.2 hit approx. 50 km WNW of Greece's capital Athens this morning at 06:00 am local time.
The tremor woke many people up when they felt a short vibration, sometimes a mild horizontal shaking when they were closer to the epicenter, which was located in the western part of the Corinthian Gulf a few km from the popular beach town of Psatha.
According to the National Observatory, the quake occurred at a depth of 13 km. It is likely tectonic in origin and related to the active regional Corinthian fault system. Although felt widely, its magnitude posed no threat to the population and infrastructure.
