Earthquakes shook Greece on Tuesday morning.

Thousands of people were startled awake.

Athens – Several tremors shook parts of Greece on Tuesday morning.

The strongest earthquake measured 4.8 on the Richter scale.

This is reported by the Geodynamic Institute of Athens.

The epicenter was therefore 13 kilometers below the sea floor southeast of the island of Evia.

The tremors were also felt in the capital Athens, 60 kilometers away.

The tremor happened shortly after 6:30 a.m. (local time).

This was followed almost an hour later by two more earthquakes, measuring 4.1 and 4.2 on the Richter scale.

"So far we have no information about injuries or damage," said Lefteris Raviolos, mayor of the small town of Karystos on the island of Evia, on state broadcaster ERT.
