A mild 4,8R earthquake shook much of the eastern coast of the Peloponnese in southern Greece on Tuesday morning. The quake’s epicenter was pinpointed at 16 kilometers north, northeast of the coastal town of Leonidio and at a depth of 14.5 kilometers.

The tremor was recorded at 07.20 (05.20 GMT).

The quake was felt as far away as the port city of Piraeus, northeast in the greater Athens area.

Speaking on the state broadcaster (ERT) later in the morning, the head of the Athens Geodynamic Institute, Athanasios Ganas, said the earthquake occurred in the Gulf of Argolida between the island of Spetses and the Peloponnese mainland, emanating from a well-known and large rift.

No injuries or damage was reported.
