Earthquakes rattle Evia and the Dodecanese

Two earthquakes, moderate this time, rattled the island of Evia again on Saturday and despite the low magnitude they were felt in Greek capital Athens as well.

A 3.9 R earthquake occurred at 12;35 p.m. and was followed by another tremor of 3.8 R magnitude six minutes later.

Both earthquakes had more or less the same epicenter, respectively 8 km and 9  east-south-east of the village Zarakes

They both had also same focal depth at 9.7 and 9.5 km.

Zarakes was the epicenter of several earthquakes last week with the strongest being 5.2 R.

The new tremors on Saturday caused new concern to locals as the area has an intense seismic activity since November 29.
