Moderate magnitude 4.2 quake hits 26 km southeast of Heraklion, Greece around noon
4.2 quake 22 Oct 1:11 pm (GMT +3)
4.2 quake 22 Oct 1:11 pm (GMT +3)
A very shallow magnitude 4.2 earthquake was reported around noon near Heraklion, Crete, Greece.
According to the National Observatory of Athens (NOA), the quake hit on Friday, October 22nd, 2021, at 1:11 pm local time at a very shallow depth of 5 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.3. A third agency, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.4.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Arkalochori (pop. 3,500) located 5 km from the epicenter, Arkalochori (pop. 3,500) 5 km away, and Thrapsanon (pop. 1,500) 10 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Ano Archanes (pop. 3,900) located 16 km from the epicenter, Heraklion (pop. 137,200) 26 km away, Néa Alikarnassos (pop. 12,900) 27 km away, and Gazi (pop. 12,600) 29 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Agios Nikolaos (pop. 11,400) located 45 km from the epicenter, and Rethymnon (pop. 32,500) 74 km away.
