Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Pub­lic safety in­spec­tors were car­ry­ing out tests on build­ings in Ai­gio in the north­ern Pelo­pon­nese on Satur­day after a 4.8 Richter earth­quake rocked the area on Fri­day evening. Ini­tial checks found that 11 build­ings suf­fered dam­age as a re­sult of the tremor, whose epi­cen­ter was in the Gulf of Corinth. Two fac­to­ries were also dam­aged. None of the dam­age recorded is be­lieved to be struc­tural and no­body was in­jured dur­ing the quake. Lo­cal Mayor Thanas­sis Panagopou­los said that more than 100 peo­ple rang the mu­nic­i­pal­ity to ask for in­spec­tions to be car­ried out on their homes.
