Baku, Azerbaijan, June 12
A magnitude 6.3 earthquake off the western coast of Turkey and between the Greek islands of Lesbos and Chios shook buildings from the Aegean Turkish province of Izmir to Greece's capital of Athens on Monday, Reuters reported.
The epicentre of the quake was about 84 km (52 miles) northwest of the Turkish coastal city of Izmir, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) said on its website.
There were no immediate reports of injuries in either Turkey or Greece, according to preliminary information from local authorities, although the quake was felt as far away as the Greek capital of Athens.
Greek television stations reported some structural damage in the town of Plomari on Lesbos.
