Undersea quake in Greece, no injuries

ATHENS - An undersea earthquake measuring 4.8 on the Richter scale hit near the Greek island of Andros early Wednesday and was felt in the capital, the Athens Observatory said.

No damage or injuries were reported from the Aegean Sea tremor, which occurred 126 kilometres (78 miles) east of Athens at 0403 GMT.

Earthquakes occur frequently in Greece. In January, thousands of people were left homeless by a quake on the Ionian island of Cephalonia, in the west of the country.
