An earthquake of 4.6 on the Richter scale occurred Monday morning at 7:12 a.m. in an underwater region of the North Aegean Sea.
The revised solution from the Geodynamic Institute of the Observatory of Athens gives the earthquake at 4.6 Richter, with a focal depth of 17.5 km, and an epicenter 23 km southwest of Mount Athos.
The new earthquake was again felt in several areas. It is recalled until the early hours of Sunday, an earthquake of magnitude 5.2 occurred in the same area.
On Sunday, OASP President Prof. Efthymios Lekkas spoke of a rich seismic sequence in the Halkidiki region.
“The successive seismic vibrations are due to a branch of the Anatolian fault, which passes southwest of Halkidiki,” Lekkas noted.
“The phenomenon requires monitoring. This is not a matter of concern, the footage is rich but normal, however, one has to see how it is.
