Abstract

At 03:14 am on 15 June 1995, a devastating earthquake occurred in Central Greece, in the region of Eratini (almost opposite to the town of Egion, which is why this event is called the Eratini-Egion earthquake), which shook half of Greece and was also strongly felt at Athens. The earthquake, which was eventually announced by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to have a magnitude of Mw = 6.5, caused widespread destruction, as well as the deaths of 25 people due to the collapse of a building and a hotel in the Egion area.
