Hi in Kefalonia & was wondering about the earthquakes here because I think we just had one, only lasted about 5 seconds but the apartment shook a bit, Is this normal as I am getting married tomorrow, I think it might be a sign from God or my Mother warning my wife to be !!!!

Small tremours are common place and the locals are used to them and think nothing of them, though can imagine for us holiday makers can be a little disturbing!

We came home on the 8th so missed it but had a couple of them over the years. As said "quite common"

More info and blogs from people all around the island plus Zante.

A little more on the slightly larger than normal earthquake 2 nights ago. We were at epicentre & it was only 10 kilometres down. No problems, all quite usual.

Hi here in kefalonia too. Yes it was an earthquake and apparently 4.6 on the scale and came from in between scala and Zante on the same point as the big 1953 quake. Alls well though... We were in arostoli at a restaurant and the whole table and chairs rose up, all the birds flew away and everyone went quiet, very eerie. Hope your wedding went well we got married here 2 years ago in scala a very special moment.
