Minutes ago, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported a 6.1-magnitude earthquake in Eastern Mediterranean Sea in Greece at a depth of 58.5km.

Since the earthquake has just occurred, the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.

The strong earthquake was felt by a lot of people close to the epicenter. It is believed that there might have been minor damage to the infrastructure. The earthquake was mostly felt by Crete Island and Anaphi Island. It was felt as far away as Israel. More details to follow.
