The residents of Kefalonia have been worried by the intense seismic activity lately. However, on Sunday within 1.5 hours, from 3:35 p.m. until 5:03 p.m. 8 earthquakes have been recorded, the largest of which was 3.5 on the Richter scale.

In his statements to ERT, the seismologist and Research Director of the Geodynamic Institute Gerasimos Papadopoulos did not rule out the possibility of aftershocks, saying:

“The seismic activity in Kefalonia started on February 27 but intensified today. We are monitoring the evolving seismic activity. There are two possibilities in such cases that we consider. One is what we call a “swarm series”, that is, relatively small magnitudes that are approximately equal to each other 3.5, 3.4, 3.3 Richter, as is the current case and the second, the most dangerous, to be aftershocks. I’m not in favor of the second opinion.”
