A 4.9-magnitude earthquake struck 13 km northeast of Chalcis, Euboea, Central Greece at a depth of 13.2km.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.

The earthquake was most likely felt in Makrikapa (pop. 880) located 6 km from the epicenter, and Chalcis (pop. 59,100) 16 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Thebes (pop. 22,000) located 44 km from the epicenter, Acharnes (pop. 99,300) 54 km away, Marousi (pop. 72,300) 58 km away, Chalandri (pop. 74,200) 61 km away, Peristeri (pop. 140,000) 62 km away, Athens (pop. 664,000) 65 km away, Kallithea (pop. 100,600) 69 km away, and Piraeus (pop. 163,700) 70 km away.

There is no risk of a tsunami.
