A second earthquake registered shortly before 19:00 on Wednesday off the southeastern coast of Crete, measuring 5.3 on the Richter scale.

In the morning, an earthquake measuring 5.7 on the Richter scale occurred in the same region of the sea at 07:08.

Both earthquakes had a focal point 48km SW of Arvi, on the southern coast of the island.

No damage was reported, while the Geodynamic Institute at the National Observatory of Athens said that the tremor, 393km SSE of Athens, was felt at the southern section of eastern Crete, where people rushed out of their homes.

Speaking of the first one, Professor of Geophysics and Chairman of the Department of Geology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Costas Papazachos told Athens-Macedonian News Agency, “We had an earthquake of medium depth. These earthquakes are a totally different category of earthquakes. The good thing is that they usually do not have a post-seismic activity. They are isolated events, so we do not need to worry about the next few days. They are felt, they are annoying, they do not have aftershocks, they do not cause damage.”
