An earthquake measuring 4 on the Richter scale struck this Tuesday morning in a sea area west of the island of Samos, according to measurements by the Greek Geodynamic Institute.

The focal depth of the tremors is estimated at 10 km and its epicenter at 33 km west of the island of Samos.

Recall that this part of the Aegean is an area with high seismic activity, where in October last year a strong earthquake shook the surrounding islands, while tremors were felt in both Greece and Turkey.

The magnitude of the October tremors was 6.9 on the Richter scale, and the epicenter was reported to be northeast of the island of Samos with a focal depth of 10 km. The powerful earthquake caused significant material damage and 2 victims, who were 2 teenagers returning from school.
