Nearly half an hour ago a 5.2-magnitude earthquake struck the Aegean Sea, 158 km northeast of Heraklion, Crete, Greece at a depth of 108.4km.

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 felt as weak shaking in towns located close to the epicenter. This includes Astypalaia, Kefalos, Kalymnos (Dodecanese), Oia and Kos Town (Kos).
