  • [01] It's too early to say if Italy's earthquake was the main one, Greek seismologist says

  • [01] It's too early to say if Italy's earthquake was the main one, Greek seismologist says

    The earthquake in Italy was so disastrous because of the many old medieval buildings, churches and monuments, the head of the Anti-seismic Planning and Protection Organisation Efthymios Lekkas and Athens Geodynamic Institute seismologist Gerassimos Chouliaras on Wednesday said in statements to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency.

    Chouliaras did not rule out the possibility of another big earthquake. "It is too early to say if this was the main earthquake. In the past Italy recorded such strong pre-earthquakes," he noted.

    Both of them pointed out that the earthquake was quite superficial, it had a focal depth of 10 km and that was the reason for the disasters. Lekkas said that Italy has not yet asked for help, but they are preparing themselves to send technical assistance.
