2229 – earthquakes near Athos Sunday 16th of January 2022

Earthquake recorded 16-1: the red Star is a 5.4 magnitude.

Monk Theodosios reported to me that earthquakes were felt on Athos today.

“They occured in the sea south of the monastic community, some 33 km from Karyes, and had a magnitude of 5.4. The quake even rattled Attica, 225 kilometers away. The Geodynamic Institute of the National Observatory of Athens estimates that the tremor was at a depth of 7 kilometers. The European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) registered the magnitude of the earthquake at 5.4 and the depth at 5 kilometers” (source Ekathimerimi.com).

There are no damages or injures reported so far.
