According to seismologist Dr. Chouliaras comes from the same area that gave the “quake cluster” of the 9th of January, when there were 18 tremors in 10 hours.

Seismologist Efthimios Lekkas, as he stated to Proto Thema, shares the same view arguing, however, that the magnitude of the earthquake was 4,5R.

The activity is still ongoing according to the seismologists, but they claim that since there are no major rifts in the area there is little danger of a stronger earthquake.
