Strong earthquake strikes off western Greece coast

A strong earthquake struck off the island of Lefkada on Tuesday morning, rattling all the Ionian islands and being felt as far as the Greek capital of Athens 385 kilometers away.

According to initial reports from the Geodynamic Institute, the tremor measured around 6 on the Richter scale and took place at 9.11 a.m., with its epicenter located 11 kilometers off the island’s southwest coast at a depth of 5 kilometers.

Other agencies measured the quake being as strong as 6.7 Richter.

There were no initial reports of injuries or damage.

Yes, and several in between, probably some more aftershocks to come.

Seismologists have not ruled out the possibility that stronger tremors may follow.

Subsequent wobbles smaller so far. For subsequent 'quakes nearer Kef see Kef quakes: wobble watch

It has also been reported that four people have been hospitalized as a result of the earthquake: two boys aged 10 and 12 (from the villages of Lygia and Vasiliki respectively), an 88-year-old woman from Pinakohori and a 45-year-old man from Lefkada.

According a local resident who spoke to Mega Channel, the village Athani (near Porto Katsiki) on the western side of the island has suffered major damages from the tremor, with churches, houses and other buildings collapsing. Landslides were also noted in Nydri and Pigadisani.

Not so good for Lefkada but a lucky near miss for Kef.

Daily Mail has an interesting video of the Levkas 'quake, only problem is it's not Levkas, nor Ioannina, as stated. It's a quake that hit Japan around 11/03/11.

"Levkas" 17/11/15:

Don't be daft Maik.  Of course it's Lefkas town - it was just like that when we went there in the 80's!   :lol:

Yep, earthquakes have a nasty habit of reducing the height of buildings.

Earthquake moved Lefkada 36 cm south, say seismologists

The island of Lefkada moved 36 cm to the south after the strong earthquake measuring 6.1 on the Richter scale that stroke the Ionian island on Tuesday according to Athens Geodynamics Institute data.

"It makes sense after this quake" said to ANA-MPA seismologist-researcher Gerassimos Chouliaras. A similar movement happened on Cephalonia after January 2014 earthquake.
