Tsalentis: The 6.1R earthquake is not related to the Albanian quake

The strong earthquake measuring 6.1 on the Richter scale recorded between the islands of Kythera and Crete on Wednesday is not related to the Albanian earthquake, Professor of Seismology Akis Tselentis said to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA).

“It is an earthquake independent of the Albanian one and because of its large focal depth – about 70 kilometers – it will have no continuity. Such kind of earthquakes happen once and for all. Moreover, such earthquakes are widely felt because of their focal depth,” Tselentis said.
