A strong magnitude 5.2 earthquake shook the Marmaris district in Turkey’s southern Muğla province Sunday, according to Turkey's Disaster & Emergency Management Authority (AFAD).
The quake struck at 8.43 p.m. (local time) and was quite deep, measuring at a depth of 61.41 km below the seabed, AFAD said.
It was felt in Izmir, Antalya and surrounding provinces.
Muğla Governor Orhan Tavlı said that no casualties or damage have taken place in the area.
"Our teams are currently carrying out field scanning work in the area," Tavlı told Anadolu Agency.
Marmaris District Governor Ertuğ Şevket Aksoy also confirmed that there have not been any casualties or damage following the earthquake.
Turkey is among the world's most seismically active countries as it is situated on a number of active fault lines, with the most potentially devastating one being the Northern Anatolia Fault (NAF), where the Anatolian and Eurasian plates meet.
