A powerful undersea earthquake has rattled Greece's island of Crete and was felt in the southern mainland.
The US Geological Survey gave a preliminary magnitude of 6.0 for the quake, which occurred at 9:23 a.m. on Wednesday at a depth of 71 kilometers.
There were no initial reports of any damage or injury from the temblor, a day after a powerful quake in neighboring Albania killed at least 25 people and caused damage in the coastal city of Durres and nearby areas.
