The Geodynamics Institute of the National Observatory of Athens says a magnitude 5.8 strong quake hit Greece’s Crete island on Monday.

The tremor’s epicentre was located at a depth of 10 km, some 25 km south of the city of Heraklion, the capital of Crete island, followed by aftershocks up to 4.3 magnitudes, according to Greek scientists.

Material damage has been reported, with no injuries until now, local officials told Greek national news agency AMNA.

Earlier, the Euro Mediterranean Seismological Centre put the quake’s magnitude at 6.2, which was later revised to 6.0.
