Athens earthquake 3.5 Richter

A new, quite tangible earthquake with a magnitude of 3.5 points according to Richter occurred at 22:12 on Sunday evening in the city of Thebes, near Athens

Seismic vibration was felt in many areas of Attica and caused concern. According to the European Mediterranean Seismological Center, the earthquake is 3.5 Richter, the epicenter was 1 km north of the city of Thebes and northwest of Athens. The focal depth was only 15 km, and therefore the inhabitants of Attica and Athens clearly felt it.

The earthquake, according to preliminary information, occurred in the context of postseismic activity (echo of the earthquake of 07/18/21), as confirmed by the seismologist and director of the Institute of Geodynamics, Professor Akis Celentis.

“This is the expected aftershock associated with the geo-fault in the Parnifa region,” added OASP Chairman Efthymios Lekkas on ERT.

Recall that July 18 in Thebes there was an earthquake with a magnitude of 3.6 on the Richter scale, followed by several less powerful aftershocks.
