Greek Island of Karpathos Hit by 4.8-Magnitude Quake

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 4.8 shook Greece's southeastern Aegean Sea islands Friday, officials said. No damage or injuries were reported.

Karpathos lies between the popular resort islands of Rhodes and Crete in an earthquake-prone part of Greece, which is one of the world's most seismically active areas.

But while earthquakes are common in Greece, fatalities and major damage are rare.

Man in western Greece handed suspended sentence for animal abuse

A man was Friday given a 15-month suspended jail sentence and fined 5,000 euros by a misdemeanors court in the town of Igoumenitsa, western Greece, which found him guilty of beating a puppy for grabbing a chicken.

He was also ordered to pay for the cost of the trial. The court did not find any mitigating circumstances in the case. The dog has since found a new home.

Greece Prepares Disaster Plan if Santorini Volcano Erupts Again

It’s been 3,666 years since the volcano on the now fabled island of Santorini exploded in one of the most cataclysmic events in world history but if it happens again, Greece’s General Secretariat for Civil Protection said it has a  ready plan to deal with it.

An official told the state-run Athens-Macedonia News Agency (ANA-MPA) that the 184-page study named Talio was an “Emergency Response and Immediate / Short-Term Impact Management of the Volcanic Activity Event at the Santorini Volcanic Complex.”
