A second earthquake of 5.1 magnitude hit in the Aegean Sea, north of Rhodes and East of Kos only six minutes after a 6.5 magnitude quake had hit the area.

There have been at least five more aftershocks measuring over 4 magitude in the Richter scale.

Just felt the earthquake off the coast. The whole room shook here in Kolymbia, Rhodes. That may be the end of sleep for the night.
