Quake, measuring 4.1 Richter, strikes seabed off Crete


A moderate undersea quake, measuring 4.2 on the Richter scale, struck off Gavdos, a tiny island south of Crete, at 10.10 a.m. on Wednesday, according to the Geodynamic Institute of the Athens Observatory.

The quake, whose epicenter was located some 42 kilometers southwest of Gavdos, caused no injuries or major damage, seismologists said.

A 6.1 magnitude quake struck off the southeast Aegean island of Lesvos Monday killing one person and injuring at least 10.
