An earthquake of magnitude 5.3 rattled Crete and other islands in the south Aegean Sea.
Authorities have reported no injuries or serious damage.
The undersea earthquake occurred at 6:24am. Today, according to the Geodynamic Institute of Athens, some 244 kilometres south of Athens. A 4.4-magnitude aftershock in the same region occurred two hours later.
Earthquake expert Eftymios Lekkas, a professor of geology at Athens University, said the aftershock pattern from the earthquake was normal and not a cause for concern. (Athens News/gw)
Well, we didn't feel a thing in our house. So, no cracks, burst pipes, or shaking crockery to report. 

The dogs were quiet too. 4 in a bed and the little one said...

I had my first cello lesson of the year, today, and excited about learning a new piece, Vivaldi, Sonata in B flat (47) Hope the dogs are not too disturbed by it!
