EThe Greek island of Crete was shaken by a severe earthquake on Saturday. The center of the 6.0 magnitude quake was 55 kilometers south of the coastal city of Ierapetra, the authorities in Athens said. According to the police, there were initially no reports of victims or major damage to property. There were isolated landslides.

The earthquake occurred about 15 kilometers below the ocean floor, but was felt across the island, reports state television ERT. “We are not worried. It happened at great depth and far from the island, ”said geology professor and head of the Greek earthquake protection agency, Efthymios Lekkas, on the Skai news channel.

Due to the movement of tectonic plates, earthquakes occur repeatedly in the Mediterranean region. In July 2017, two people died in a magnitude 6.7 quake on the island of Kos. In 1999, 143 people died in an earthquake in the capital region of Athens.
