(Greece) (392 km W from epicenter)(no details): Μικρός αλλά αισθητός σεισμός. Είμαστε αγχωμένοι μετά το μεγάλο σεισμό των προηγούμενων ημερών. Δεν έχει εμφανιστεί στην τηλεόραση κανένας σεισμολόγος να μας ενημερώσει υπεύθυνα για το τι να περιμένουμε από το φαινόμενο, ο καθένας δηλώνει ό,τι θέλει, δεν συνεννοούνται μόνο να τσακώνονται ξέρουν. Οι μισοί λένε ότι θα γίνει μεγαλύτερος σεισμός της τάξης των 7 ρίχτερ και άλλοι λένε ότι το φαινόμενο έχει φθίνουσα πορεία. Δεν ξέρουμε τι να κάνουμε. Τα σπίτια στο νησί είναι παλιά και σε κακή κατάσταση. Τι να κάνουμε; Να απομακρυνθούμε ή όχι; Αν γίνει μεγαλύτερος σεισμός θα είναι μεγάλη καταστροφή. Εμείς περιμένουμε και ελπίζουμε για το καλύτερο... (via EMSC)
