Greece hit by strong earthquake


news.bbc.co.uk

A powerful earthquake has hit Greece, shaking buildings and waking people from their sleep.
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.

Reports say the quake was felt over much of Greece, which is the most earthquake-prone country in Europe.

The earthquake struck at 0514 GMT - 0714 local time - while many people were still asleep.

It's too early to say anything about casualties and damage.

This thread to gather informations as they become available.

I remember back in the 60s there was a real devastating one in Skopje, Macedonia. 6.5 is a powerful quake, but as it was rather deep damage may be limited.
