South of Kamariotissa, Greece - 24 May, 2014 - M 6.9

A large earthquake occurred about 20 kilometers south of Kamariotissa, Greece today. The event was shallow (about 10 km) and appears to be associated with strike-slip faulting in the northern Aegean Sea.

Here are seismograms from the mainshock (east-west is off clipped (off-scale).

The stations are operated by the National Observatory of Athens, Inst. of Geodynamics and the Geophysical Laboratory, University of Thessaloniki, Greece respectively.

Both these stations are close enough to watch the aftershock sequence (remove the SIGNALPARAMETERS line from the above list and choose real-time monitoring mode). Here's a look at what's going on at the time of this post.
