A 5.3-magnitude quake on Saturday striked central Greece, Itea at depth of 13.7 km; tremor felt nearly 160 km away in Athens but no damage reported yet.
The quake had a depth of around 14 kilometres (8.6 miles) and an epicentre in the Gulf of Corinth, some 200 kilometres (320 miles) northwest of the Greek capital, the Observatory said.
“It was a strong earthquake felt in the general area and in Athens as well,” Efthymios Lekkas, head of Greece’s earthquake planning and protection agency, told state TV ERT.
“The situation is under control and we are monitoring it. There are many fault lines in the Gulf of Corinth,” he said.
