Minutes ago a 4.7-magnitude earthquake struck the Ionian Sea, 92 km south of Gythio, Laconia, Peloponnese, Greece at a depth of 64.6km

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might still be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports, but it is unlikely.

The earthquake was felt as weak shaking in Kythira (pop. 280) located 44 km from the epicenter, and Kalamos (pop. 220) 47 km away, Elafonisos (pop. 750) located 73 km from the epicenter, Gythio (pop. 4,300) 92 km away, Asopos (pop. 1,300) 92 km away, Gefyra (pop. 1,300) 93 km away, Sykia (pop. 1000) 98 km away, Molaoi (pop. 3,000) 100 km away, and Kissamos (pop. 4,200) 108 km away.
