Earthquake Rattles Olympic Venues
ATHENS, Greece - An earthquake rattled Olympic venues Tuesday in and around Athens.
The Athens Geodynamic Institute said the tremor had a preliminary magnitude of 4.5 and occurred at 3:38 p.m. local time. It was centered about 42 miles northeast of Athens, 12 miles beneath the Aegean Sea.
"There is no reason to panic. It was a very small quake," said Giorgos Stavrakakis, a seismologist with the Geodynamic Institute. "It is a very active area and we often have quakes there."
I hope no damage to any venues occurs and that every fan and athlete is safe and sound.
