M 4.5 moderate shallow earthquake recorded in Greece (@ 5 km depth) with epicenter located just 9 km SE Kastrákion. Light to weak shaking will have felt by the people of  Naúpaktos  and Pátrai.
10:34 UTC (local time 13:34; 2012/04/25 @ epicenter)
Patrae is Greece's third largest urban area and the regional capital of West Greece, located in northern Peloponnese, 215 km west of Athens.
Small tremors are recorded along the coast of Patras almost constantly. Larger earthquakes hit the area every few years with potentially destructive effects. In 1993, a 5.0 magnitude earthquake caused some damage to several (mostly older) buildings throughout Patras due to the proximity of the epicenter to the city. On June 15, 1995, a 6.2 magnitude earthquake hit the nearby town of Aigion, causing some structural damage to a few buildings of Patras as well (via wikipedia)


Preliminary Epicenter Location
159 km W Athens (pop 729,137)
28 km NE Pátrai (pop 163,360)
14 km E Naúpaktos (pop 13,793)
9 km SE Kastrákion (pop 912)
