Significant magnitude 4.7quake hits 41 km southwest of Mytilene, Greece in the morning


A shallow magnitude 5.2 earthquake was reported in the morning near Mytilene, Lesbos, North Aegean, Greece.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Monday 1 February 2021 at 8:00 am local time at a shallow depth of 10 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed as a magnitude 4.7 earthquake. More to come.
