The European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) said that an earthquake has struck south-west of Greece’s Methoni region.
(EMSC) said it struck around 150 miles south-west of Gargalianoi off the coast of Greece at a magnitude of 6.2 and was at a depth of 10 km.
The epicenter of the quake was 141km (87 miles) south of Crete’s capital Iraklion. A strong aftershock occurred around 102km (63 miles) from the island.
The aftershock had a preliminary magnitude of 4.8 and was followed by a second aftershock with a magnitude of 4.1.
After the EMSC announcement that read: “M6.2 earthquake strikes 260 km SW of Greece,” many residents reportedly went out onto their balconies as the quake shook the area for several seconds.
There was also a report that a large rock slide crashed down onto a main road after being triggered by the earthquake.
Residents in Athens reportedly felt the quake shake the city for several seconds and people reported being woken up by the tremors. The quake was also reported by people as being felt in Albania.
The Biblical prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21) describe that earthquakes will be a sign which indicates the beginning of the end of this age of grace called the “beginning of sorrows.”
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
