Moderate mag. 5.3 earthquake - Phocis, Central Greece, 19 km east of Nafpaktos, Aitoloakarnania, West Greece, on Wednesday, 23 Dec 4:58 pm (GMT +2) - 21 minutes ago
A magnitude 5.3 earthquake near Nafpaktos, Aitoloakarnania, West Greece, Greece, was reported only 8 minutes ago by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter in the afternoon on Wednesday 23 December 2020 at 4:58 pm local time. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.8 earthquake.
