A 5.7-magnitude earthquake struck near Rhodes, Dodecanese, South Aegean, Greece at a shallow depth of 14.4km. The earthquake magnitude was recalculated to 5.7.

Still, the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might revised in the next hours or minutes as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their report.

Towns or cities that might have felt a weak shaking include Nikia (pop. 48) located 26 km from the epicenter, Kéfalos (pop. 2,500) 49 km away, Kardamena (pop. 1,900) 49 km away, Kos Town (pop. 19,200) 62 km away, Kalymnos (pop. 12,300) 70 km away, and Turgutreis (pop. 16,500) 76 km away.
