A powerful 6.0-magnitude quake struck the Greek island of Crete today, about 140km south of its capital, Iraklion, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center reports.

Testimonies gathered on the site show light movement being felt as far away as 349 km, about 217 miles. There appears, however, to be no reports of major damage so far.
