Earthquake shakes island of Crete, Greece
Location and user reports of this evening's quake in Crete
Location and user reports of this evening's quake in Crete
A moderately strong earthquake hit near the south coast of Crete this evening, at 19:28 local time. The earthquake epicenter was located 50 km south of the regional capital Heraklion and the quake had a depth of around 50 km.
While the National Observatory of Athens (NOA) indicates a magnitude of 5.3, other agencies reported magnitudes of up to 5.9, although NOA's regional national network probably provides the most reliable data.
Thanks to the moderate depth, no significant damage was caused by the quake, but it was felt widely over all of Crete, especially in the Heraklion region, but also on nearby islands.
The earthquake had a relatively long duration of up to 30 seconds, which most people felt as a light shaking.
