6.6-magnitude quake rocks Mediterranean near Cyprus

A 6.6-magnitude quake rattled the Mediterranean region, hitting the area to the north-west of Cyprus. The quake's depth was reported at 19.6 km (12.1 mi), according to the USGS.

The quake struck at 01:07 GMT, some 62 km (38 mi) off Paphos, a coastal city in southwest Cyprus with a population of some 36,000 people.

The European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) initially put the quake at 6.4-magnitude, however. The tremor sent ripples across the region, and was reportedly felt in Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt, Greece and Israel among other countries.
