Earthquake Shakes Crete

    xespao.blogspot.com-seismos9An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 4.1 Richter, hit off the southern sea on the Greek island of Crete at 7 am.

    According to the Euro-Med Seismological Center, the earthquake’s epicenter had a 10 kilometers depth which shook the island, as daily Kathimerini reports. Fortunately, there were no damage or injuries.

    Given that this area often gives earthquakes of such magnitude, the current one is considered as normal.

    Greece, because of its location at the complex boundary zone in the eastern Mediterranean between the African Plate and the Eurasian Plate, has been hit by notable earthquakes that have affected the country during recorded history. However, most quakes are of small magnitude and rarely cause severe damage or injuries.
