2020-10-30, M7.0, Greece

At 11:51:26 (UTC) on the 30th of October 2020, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake occurred 14 km NE of Néon Karlovásion, Greece (see map below). Early reports state that there has been building collapse and a sea surge that flooded streets in the Turkish resort city of Izmir. The Mediterranean region is prone to such events due to the northward convergence of the African plate with respect to the Eurasian plate along a complex plate boundary.

The earthquake was recorded at seismic stations worldwide, including stations of the Irish Nation Seismic Network (INSN), see seismic waveforms below.
