Aftershock Activity on Zakynthos Island ‘Very High’




The aftershock activity on the island of Zakynthos is very high after the strong earthquake, measuring 6.4 on the Richter scale, which shook the island early on Friday.

Two light quakes (4.2 and 4.5 Richter) woke up the residents early on Saturday. The quakes’ epicenter was located in the sea region southwest of the island, between Italy and Greece, while a series of minor shocks have been recorded.

The residents were on alert throughout the night, as seismologists warned of another strong quake, up to 5.8 Richter, which is considered necessary for the total discharge of the phenomenon.
