New data reveals earthquake moved Zakynthos by 5cm not 3cm

The latest data indicates that the 6.4-Richter earthquake that shook the island of Zakynthos a week ago has actually caused the island's town to shift laterally by five centimetres, not three as first reported, the head of the National Observatory of Athens Geodynamic Institute, Prof. Akis Tselentis, posted on Facebook on Friday, according to ANA. He also noted that the pattern of post-quake activity around the island was unfolding normally at this time "and is expected to continue with a gradually falling frequency - but not intensity - in the occurrence of aftershocks." While this meant that the number of aftershocks each day will be fewer, some of them could continue to be strong, he clarified.
