Earthquake at Karpathos: 6.1 points

The power of the earthquake, which occurred on Tuesday morning 127 km from the island on the island of Karpathos in the southern part of the Aegean Sea, was 6.1 points on the Richter scale

The earthquake occurred at 08:32. The epicenter of the earthquake was located in the sea area 127 km southeast of Karpathos and at a depth of 58 km, the Institute of Geodynamics of the National Observatory of Athens said.

There were no reports of destruction or injury.

The earthquake was particularly felt in the islands of Karpathos and Kasos, as well as in wider areas such as the southern coast of Turkey, Cyprus, Israel and Egypt. However, he was reportedly overlooked in the Dodecanese.

This is the strongest earthquake in a series of powerful tremors in the outer Greek arc that have occurred in the past 30 days.

The previous strong push with a magnitude of 5.8 occurred on September 29 in the area Arkalohori in Crete. Two days earlier, a 6-magnitude shock damaged hundreds of houses and killed one person.
