An earthquake of 6.4 magnitude off the coast of Crete caused minor damage on the Greek island on Saturday, but there were no reports of casualties or serious destruction, police and fire brigade said.

The center of the quake, at 1311 GMT (about 4:11 pm local time), was 22.5 miles (40 km) below the seabed and 43 miles (70 km) west of Chania on Crete, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

Tremors were felt as far as the Greek capital Athens, some 180 miles (275 km) away, and across southern Greece, including the Peloponnese peninsula and the Cyclades cluster of islands, the Athens Geological Institute said.

It put the quake at a lower 6.2 magnitude but described it as “severe”.
