The earthquake of magnitude 4,3 points occurred in 106 km in the west-northwest of the Polis coast, 119 km from Pafos, and at 185 km from the capital of the island of Nicosia.

The last earthquake reported in Cyprus was an earthquake in the 4,0 score, which occurred about eight months ago in the south-south-west of Paphos.

The earthquake on Monday was at a depth of 53,5 km, and the previous one at 24 km. Earthquakes occurring at a depth of less than 70 km are classified as "shallow-focus earthquakes" and lie within the outer earth's crust, and "deep focus" earthquakes occur in deeper subduction zones of the Earth.
