The earthquake caused objects to fall from buildings in Limassol 120 km east of the epicenter and set off building and car alarms in that city, according to Fria Tider's reporter at the site caused by the earthquake.

What it looks like on the east coast and in the tourist resort of Paphos, where several Swedish citizens vacation and work, had not yet been reported by the Cypriot news media at 02.50.

The American measuring institute USGS reports via its automatic seismological systems that the quake measured 6.6 on the Richter scale and had its epicenter off the west coast of the island.

Google states via Android Earthquake Alerts System that the earthquake was reported by mobile phones in Pégeia.

Google uses device and sensor data from Android phones that have activated exact location, which allows Google to detect when many phones are shaking in the same way at the same time.

According to Google, the authorities will soon return with official information.
