New seismic vibrations of 3.4 and 2.7 Richter in the south of Crete

Many citizens - especially in Western Crete - felt the quakes, which occurred around midnight.

According to the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Center, the first quake measured 3.4 on the Richter scale, but was felt as its epicenter was on land, 23 kilometers southwest of Rethymnon.

Its focal depth is estimated at just two kilometers.
