भूकंप रिपोर्ट टिप्पणी:
Epicenter in (the Mediterranean Sea) between the Greek island of Crete and the islands of Kassos and Karpathos.
Almost exactly the same spot than the devastating earthquake and tsunami from 1303 (although there was not a good knowledge on earthquakes in that era).
Today's earthquake brings memories back to life and revives the possible dangers for mega-earthquakes in this part of Europe.
Ask 1000 tourist who are leaving for Greece for a summer vacation what they should do in case of an earthquake ? If 1% knows the answer, it will be a great result. Based on history and present, it is a shame that tourists are not informed on how to behave in case of an earthquake.

विकिपीडिया report on this major historic event :
यह 1303 Crete earthquake occurred at about dawn on 8 August. It had an estimated magnitude of about 8 and triggered a major tsunami that caused severe damage and loss of life on Crete and at Alexandria.

The earthquake and the tsunami are recorded as having a devastating impact on Heraklion, Crete.[3] Detailed information is available from reports made by representatives from Heraklion (then Candia) to the controlling Venetian administration, written on the day of the earthquake and twenty days later. They describe the extent of damage to the main public buildings of Candia and castles over the whole island. The reports also mention that most of the victims were women and children, without giving numbers.[ There was also massive flooding at Alexandria. Many ships were destroyed, some of them carried up to 2Â miles (3.2 km) inland. The port city of Acre, on the Levantine coast, was also affected; buildings were destroyed and people swept to their deaths.

In Egypt the earthquake caused severe damage in Cairo, toppling minarets on many mosques. In Alexandria the city walls were mostly destroyed and the lighthouse was badly damaged

Tectonic explanation
The Hellenic arc, the most likely location for this earthquake, is an arcuate tectonic feature related to the subduction of the African Plate beneath the Aegean Sea Plate. It is one of the most active seismic zones in western Eurasia and has a history of large earthquakes that also affect Egypt
