The Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Institute recorded the tremors at 3.8 and 3.7 on the Richter scale.

It is recalled that the faults in Thebes are a continuation of the faults of the Corinthian Gulf.

"There is a significant possibility of a very strong earthquake in the region," seismologist Gerasimos Papadopoulos said last year, after a 4.3 Richter earthquake on April 10, 2022.
