5.6 magnitude earthquake in Crete

Seconds before the 5.6 Richter earthquake that rocked Crete, at 7:08 am this morning, the island’s residents were alerted to their mobile phones.

This is a special Google application that sends a message about strong seismic vibrations that the gadget senses.

The epicenter of the earthquake was recorded 17 km from Arkhana-Asterousia. The depth of the focus is 86.8 km. Efthymios Lekkas, Professor of Geology and President of the OASP, explains:

“The seismic vibration is not related to other earthquakes in Crete in the previous period, and we will not have a post-seismic sequence due to the depth of the earthquake.”

No damage has yet been reported on the island.
