A 5.8-magnitude earthquake struck the Greek island of Cephalonia in the Ionian Sea on Sunday, the Athens Observatory said, but there were no immediate reports of injuries.
The quake took place at 15:55 pm (1355 GMT) and was described as "very strong" by the Observatory. Its epicentre was 6 kilometres (3 miles) from the island's main town of Argostoli, some 280 km west of Athens.
"For the moment no casualties have been reported," a local police official told AFP. Early indications suggested there had been some damage to roads, he added.
