There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries

The quake’s epicenter was located 14 kilometers southwest of the village of Dimitsana at a depth of five kilometers.

Greece lies in one of the world’s most seismically active areas and earthquakes are common, although major damage and fatalities are rare.
