5.0R in Northern Greece!

A 5.0R event came in just half an hour before the close of the day, last night in Northern Greece. This delayed earthquake was 10km from Kristoni population 1200. The following map shows more detail of the area. Testimonials say some people paniced, it was too strong. We have no further news right now.

As far as prediction is concerned this earthquake came right at the close of our danger window as we warned on  17th November, the day before, (see here). Having seen the event on 16th of magnitude 4.5R we said ...we had an event on 16th so unlikly to arrive on 17th but window closes on 18th. So clearly this came at the end of our window, so we can claim it.
