Kefalonia: Small chance of a large earthquake says Celentis – More likely the cluster effect

It is negligible according to the estimates of Seismologist Akis Celentis the possibility of a large one being noted in its area, where in the last 24 hours there is a barrage of microvibrations. According to the analysis by Akis Celentis it is most likely to be a swarm, i.e. a large number of microshocks with small sizes. In his Facebook post he writes: “The microseismic action continued strongly in the last 24 hours. We have recorded a large number of microshocks over 1R as shown in the figure. Seismic action is localized in the same place as before seismic space and has the cluster characteristics i.e. a large number of micro-shocks with approximately adjacent small sizes.” “The statistical analysis we did does not indicate that we have a visual sequence. We are almost certain that the phenomenon will remain limited in the same seismic area characterized by a small ARD-NA direction fault and will continue several days with gradually decreasing seismic action. The possibility of having a large earthquake is therefore real (nature is not 100% predictable always) but extremely small to negligible. Personally I’m not worried,” he concluded. The post of Akis Celentis: “KALEMERA YOU “Kephalonias Earthquakes” Microseismic action continued strongly in the last 24 hours. We have recorded a large number of microshocks over 1R as shown in the figure. Seismic action is localized in the same area as before a seismic site and has the cluster characteristics i.e. a large number of micro-shocks with approximately similar small sizes. Our statistical analysis doesn’t indicate that we have a visual sequence.
