EMSC have it, only slightly higher magnitude and 20 km deeper:
Magnitude Mw 6.2
SOUTHERN GREECE
2008-01-06 at 05:14:18.5 UTC
37.21 N ; 22.64 E
73 km


BBC news have little or no damage occurring:

Greek geologists say the quake - measuring 6.5 - was centred 120km (75 miles) south-west of Athens in the southern Peloponnese region.

But it was very deep, 51km underground, and there were no early reports of casualties or damage.

I see no news on BBC yet, and it's too far inland to cause a tsunami. No news at all yet, in fact.

yes but too close for my comfort, I just hope there are no after shocks... generally a few more hit for a while after.

Did laugh at myself when I was worried about big wave, cos it is inland but Mummy panic stuff.

Either way, hope the area settles down and no activity until at least the 8th Feb


cheers

Magnitude 6.1 - QUEEN CHARLOTTE ISLANDS REGION
2008 January 09 14:40:01 UTC
Depth 10km


Cascades subduction zone definitely seems busy at the moment. And that 6.4 near the divergent boundary as well, it definitely looks interesting.
