An hour ago the National Observatory of Athens (NOA) reported that a 4.3-magnitude earthquake struck the Aegean Sea, 54 km south of Kos, Dodecanese, South Aegean, Greece at a depth of 15.7km.

As is usual, the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.

The earthquake was most likely felt as a weak shaking in several towns or cities. These include Nikia (pop. 48) located 22 km from the epicenter, Kefalos (pop. 2,500) located 44 km from the epicenter, Kardamena (pop. 1,900) 45 km away, Antimacheia (pop. 2,300) 48 km away, Pyli (pop. 2,400) 52 km away, Kos (pop. 19,200) 58 km away, Kalymnos (pop. 12,300) 65 km away, Bodrum (pop. 39,300) 77 km away, and Rhodos (pop. 56,100) 95 km away.
