Alexandra Papathanasaki, a local community head, said: “The sea was sucked in, the rocks appeared and then the quake happened.”

Antiquities in a local museum at Sitia were reportedly damaged but no other serious damage has been reported.

Experts said they did not think Tuesday’s earthquake was related to the powerful earthquake in September.

Mr Leondarakis said: “Fortunately, there doesn’t appear to be any serious damage despite the fact that it was a strong event and occurred at a shallow depth.”
