Early morning tremor shakes Athens

 

Athenians were rocked awake on Tuesday morning by a tremor that hit a few kilometers east of the capital and was sharply felt in most parts of the city.

The quake, measuring 4.4 on the Richter scale, hit at just before 5 a.m., with no damage or injuries reported.

Its epicenter, according to seismologists, was Pikermi, a town some 24 kilometers east of the capital, and a few kilometers to the north of the Athens International Airport, which kept operating without any problems
