Lesvos rattled by fresh earthquake of 4.9 Richter


The eastern Aegean island of Lesvos was rattled by an earthquake measuring 4.9 on the Richter scale just a few days after being rocked by a 6.1-magnitude temblor.

According to the Athens Geodynamic Institute, the quake occurred at around 5.50 a.m. local time and was at a depth of 13 kilometers. It also rattled other islands in the area and the western coast of Turkey.

It comes after a 6.1-magnitude quake on June 12 claimed one life and caused widespread damage in parts of Lesvos.

There were no initial reports of injuries or damage.
