    [02] Moderate quake strikes Skyros

    28/08/2001 10:24:17

    A moderate quake measuring 4.5 on the Richter scale jolted the Aegean island of Skyros early on Tuesday at 00.45 a.m.

    According to the Geodynamic Institute of the National Observatory in Athens and the Geophysics Lab at Thessaloniki University, the epicentre of the quake was in the sea north of Skyros and some 140 kilometres northeast of Athens.

    There were no reports of damage or injuries.

    Skyros had been struck by a major earthquake measuring 5.7 on the Richter scale on July 26 this year, which had originated in roughly the same spot and caused extensive damage on the island, though fortunately there were no casualties.
