More than 100 tremors have been recorded since yesterday in Thiva, Greece after the 4.3 magnitude earthquake.
The media suggest that the Institute of Seismology has increased the number of seismographers in the area as the epicenter of the earthquakes seems to be the city of Thiva itself, which has alarmed the authorities as well as residents.
The earthquakes in question, although seemingly small, are problematic as the fracture occurs at a very shallow depth of 3 to 6 kilometers making the oscillation feel strong on the surface.
““First there is an underground noise and then everything shakes.”, say the residents, while the authorities are afraid of a stronger blow, given the sudden increase of earthquakes in this area during the last months.
Seismologists fear a magnitude 6 earthquake, which has occurred in the area before.
