An undersea quake, measuring 4.8 on the Richter scale, struck off the coast of Crete at 11.20 a.m. on Aug. 8 but there were no reports of any damage or injuries.

The quake’s epicenter was located about 30 kilometers south of Tympaki, in the prefecture of Iraklio.

A tremor of the same size struck the same area on June 1, also causing no major damage or injuries.
