Crete: Seismic Activity Continues in Quake-Stricken Village

October 21, 2021

ATHENS — The two 4.5-Richter earthquakes that shook the area of Arkalochori, Crete on Thursday are part of a sequence of aftershocks that followed a strong 5.8 Richter quake that hit Arkalochori on September 27, the head of the Geodynamics Institute of Athens professor Akis Tselentis stated to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency.

The first tremor was recorded at 11:12 and the second at 11:38, with an epicentre 3 km south-southwest of Arkalochori.

Tselentis urged people to remain calm but careful and to follow all the recommended measures, while he did not rule out the possibility of a new tremor of up to 5.0 on the Richter scale in the same area.
