Thursday morning earthquake near Atalanti felt in Athens
An earthquake measuring 4.3 on the Richter scale occurred in Atalanti, which is located about 115 kilometers northwest of the nation’s capitol, just before 10:00 on Thursday morning.
While not particularly strong, the earthquake was nevertheless felt as far away as Athens. A 4.6 magnitude earthquake was documented last Saturday in the area, where there is a known seismic fault.
The professor of Geology Efthimios Lekkas appeared on the state broadcaster DT and claimed there was nothing to be worried about.
