Two Strong Earthquakes Greek Island



A pair of earthquakes, registering as magnitude 6.1 and 5.4, struck off the island of Cephalonia, in western Greece, on Sunday. There have been no reports of serious injuries, but many buildings on the island have suffered at least minor damage and the shaking was felt as far away as Athens, nearly 300 kilometres away.

At least two dozen aftershocks have been felt since, according to the Institute of Geodynamics in Athens. One of the latest of these aftershocks registered as magnitude 5.4 according to the USGS — a significant earthquake on its own — striking just to the west of the island, about 25 kilometres northwest of the first one, at just before 9 p.m. local time (around 2 p.m. Eastern Time). Significant aftershock continue to rattle the area.

According to the latest updates from Earthquake-Report.com, nearly every building in the town of Lixouri has suffered at least minor damage so far, and many, including schools, have suffered more serious damage, such as collapsed walls and roofs. Reports of minor damage have come in from across the island, as well as the neighbouring island of Zakynthos, about 50 kilometres to the south.Kefalonia Island International Airport, just to the south of Argostoli, has apparently also suffered damage and flights there are currently delayed.
There are reports that some people have sought help at the local hospital in Argostoli for minor injuries, and the hospital there may have been evacuated due to a collapsed roof.
Reports are still coming in from the second of these two major quakes, however it has apparently caused new damage, and was felt as far away as Albania and Italy.At least two dozen aftershocks have been felt since, according to the Institute of Geodynamics in Athens. One of the latest of these aftershocks registered as magnitude 5.4 according to the USGS — a significant earthquake on its own — striking just to the west of the island, about 25 kilometres northwest of the first one, at just before 9 p.m. local time (around 2 p.m. Eastern Time). Significant aftershock continue to rattle the area.
