Light magnitude 4.2 earthquake 99 Km SSE of Moires, Greece
A magnitude 4.2 earthquake was reported only 9 minutes ago by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at an intermediate depth of 60 km (37 miles) beneath the epicenter. The magnitude, exact epicenter location and depth could be revised within the next few minutes as the agency updates and refines its calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
Towns and cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt, based on preliminary calculations, include Pýrgos (pop. 1,100) in 89 km (55 miles) distance with very weak shaking expected, Arvi (pop. 700) in 90 km (56 miles) distance, very weak shaking expected, Moíres (pop. 6,400) in 99 km (61 miles) distance, very weak shaking expected, Gra Liyiá (pop. 1,500) in 100 km (62 miles) distance, very weak shaking expected.
