New Light Quake Jolts the Elassona Area

LARISSA — A light quake measuring 4.4 on the Richter scale was recorded at 11:36 on Thursday, 13 km south-southwest of Elassona and 245 km northwest of Athens. The quake is part of the aftershock sequence after the strong earthquake that hit the area on Wednesday.

Fearful of returning to their homes, thousands of people in central Greece were spending the night outdoors late Wednesday after a powerful earthquake, felt across the region, damaged homes and public buildings.

The shallow, magnitude-6.0 quake struck near the central city of Larissa. One man was hurt by falling debris but no serious injuries were reported.

Officials reported structural damage, mainly to old houses and buildings that saw walls collapse or crack. One of them was a primary school, stone-built in 1938, in the quake-hit village of Damasi where 63 students were attending classes.
