A powerful 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck the western coast of Turkey and the Greek island of Lesbos, killing one woman.
Buildings were shaken from the Turkish province of Izmir to the Greek capital Athens.
The epicentre of the quake on Monday (Tuesday NZ Time) was about 84km northwest of the Turkish coastal city of Izmir and 15km south of Lesbos.
Extensive damage was reported at a village on Lesbos.
“Tens of buildings have collapsed and roads are blocked off,” said Marios Apostolides, the divisional commander of the fire brigade.
Lesbos Island was at the forefront of a migration crisis two years ago when hundreds of thousands of war refugees landed there seeking a gateway into Europe.
