It’s been an anxious week for Greeks with earthquakes, including an aftershock of 4.9 on Aug. 8, only two days after the area around Athens was hit with 5.1 magnitude tremor.
The strongest aftershock took place at 2:49 p.m. near the town of Amphicleia, 123 kilometers northwest of Athens, where the quake was particularly felt, and 28 kilometers northwest of Atalanti.
It was recorded by the Institute of Geodynamics at the National Observatory of Athens, which said it went down 13 kilometers, some eight miles deep.
According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre, the earthquake’s epicenter was eight kilometers from Elatia, 118 kilometers northwest of Athens and 32 kilometers southeast of Lamia with an epicenter 10 kilometers (six miles) deep, as it was on the Aug. 6 quake, too.
