Athens Residents Run Into Streets as Strong Earthquake Shakes the Capital

Athens Residents Run Into Streets as Strong Earthquake Shakes the Capital

A solid quake has struck near Athens, making residents run out into the lanes.

The city’s Institute of Geodynamics gave the seismic tremor a fundamental size of 5.1 yet the US Geological Survey gave it a primer extent of 5.3. The organization said the earthquake struck at 2.13pm local time, around 14 miles north of Athens.

The earthquake caused restricted power cuts and correspondence issues around the capital; the fire brigade got calls about individuals caught in lifts.

The earthquake, which was caught live in the studios of the state telecaster, ERT, made harm the chime tower of the Pantanassa church in Monastiraki Square in Athens.

The Civil Protection Authority said there was no quick word on injury or harm.

The most dominant tremor to hit Athens in the previous 20 years happened in 1999 when a 6.0-size earthquake caused a lot of harm and killed more than 140 individuals.
