Strong Quake Jolts Turkey, Greek Island of Lesbos

A Turkish government agency said an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.2 Richter has rocked western Turkey and the Greek island of Lesbos. It wasn’t immediately clear if Monday’s quake had caused any major damage in Turkey or Greece. Earthquakes are common in both countries, ABC News reported.
Turkey’s Disaster and Emergency Management said the earthquake was in the Aegean Sea at a depth of 7 kilometers (more than four miles) and hit at 3:28 p.m. (1228 GMT). Tremors were also felt in densely-populated Istanbul and in the western Turkish provinces of Izmir. Dogan news agency showed residents in western Turkey leaving buildings. State-run radio in Greece said hundreds of residents left buildings and waited out in the street in Lesbos’ capital, Mytilene.
