Greece was rattled by a strong earthquake Wednesday, which struck around 12:16 pm local time. The 6.3 preliminary magnitude temblor (USGS) struck about 10 km (6.1 miles) east of the town of Týrnavos, 25.1 km southeast of Lárisa, in the Thessaly region. The depth of the shaking has been estimated to be about 10.0 km (6.1 miles) below the surface, making this a shallow strike. According to a Reuters article, Greek seismologist Vassilis Karathanasis told state television that the tremor was felt across Greece. Several aftershocks between 4.4 and 5.1 have also been reported. An elderly man was pulled from a partially collapse building in the village of Mesochori, in the Tyrnavos area, according to Reuters. Minor damage to several other structures has been reported and schools in the region could remain closed for days to mitigate the danger of aftershocks. No other significant damage has yet been reported. This will be updated if additional information becomes available.
