    There have been about eight this week I believe, no real damage just cracked walls and a slight movement of effects.

    Makes you glad that all houses on Kef since 1953 are built to withstand force 10 earthquakes. :)

    Well on that sobering thought John, I would still prefer to live there with the threat of earthquakes than live here with nutters with guns ect... :) :)
    Mother nature made me if you get my drift..I'd rather she took me out than a terrorist or someone speeding on a motorway.

    Couldn't agree more! :cool:
    At least if a quake wakes me at 3 in the morning i can put it down to the effects of too much Mythos! :eek:

    You might be right about the big one building John and on the other hand maybe not, well I think that's what this article says published in the Greek press today.
    As the other half said elsewhere doesn't matter, still prefer to take the chance and live in an earthquake belt... [smiley=011.gif] [smiley=011.gif] [smiley=011.gif] [smiley=011.gif]

    The largest quake I have witnessed was the 6.4 in August 2003 - exactly fifty years since the big one.

    When I was in Skala last year I thought that there were several strange natural things going on - lack of fish close in to the shore - very quiet goats - lack of cicadas chirping away. I forecast then that there would be a biggie coming along.

    I hope I'm wrong, but these natural phenomena do usually occur to a timescale.

    All these earthquakes must be after shocks from when John G dropped his wallet in the Mythos taverna last year!!!!!!!!!!! [smiley=027.gif] [smiley=027.gif]
