(Update) Second earthquake felt by people in Limassol


A second small earthquake in a few hours rattled Limassol once again on Tuesday evening.

According to the Geological Survey Department, the 2.7 magnitude earthquake was again centred in the area of Germasogia, seven kilometres north-east of Limassol at a depth of three kilometres, Phileleftheros reported.

Earlier in the afternoon, an earthquake was felt by residents in Limassol, two days after a 2.6 magnitude quake and a series of aftershocks were recorded in the district, an independent scientific organisation reported.

According to the Euro-Mediterranean seismological centre, eyewitnesses reported shaking in Cyprus, mostly from Limassol, at around 6pm.

The earthquake has not been seismically verified.

This follows a 2.6 magnitude earthquake that shook the island on Sunday, with the epicentre in Limassol. It occurred a few minutes after 1pm and was felt in various parts of the island. No reports of injuries or damage were made.
