The Greek island of Crete is struck by an earthquake with a force of 6.0

A powerful submarine earthquake has confused the island of Crete from Greece and has been felt in the southern mainland.

The vibration of 6.0 magnitude hit shortly after 9 o'clock at a depth of 44 miles.

There was no direct word about potential damage, but experts said there were about 10 million people living in areas where the earthquake was palpable.

A local resident said they were forced to evacuate their university due to the earthquake.

It comes one day after a powerful 6.4 earthquake in Albania killed more than 20 people, leaving others stuck and buildings in ruins.

Seismologist Stephen Hicks said the earthquake in Crete was too far away to be a direct after-shock, but could be related.

& # 39; South and Southeastern Europe are really lighting up with earthquakes & # 39 ;, he said.

The Albanian earthquake was felt throughout the region, including northern Macedonia, and a 5.4-strong tremor also hit Bosnia a few hours later.
