The first tremor was recorded at 11:12 and the second at 11:38, with an epicentre 3 km south-southwest of Arkalochori.

Tselentis urged people to remain calm but careful and to follow all the recommended measures, while he did not rule out the possibility of a new tremor of up to 5.0 on the Richter scale in the same area.
