I have to comment that when I saw the first couple of quakes off the coast there this time round, I wasn't too concerned because several times before, I've seen instances of two or three quakes within a period of a few days. I started to get a bit more interested when the fourth one popped up, and then when I saw the mag 5.0 this morning (my time) I thought just like some of you did: "Uh-ohh... That's not an aftershock... They're getting bigger..."
This area now has me pretty concerned. Not because it necessarily portends anything major, but because it's an anomaly and I don't like anomalies if I can't figure out why they're anomalous.

The 1999 Athens earthquake, registering a moment magnitude of 6.0, occurred on September 7, 1999, at 2:56:50 pm local time and lasted approximately 15 seconds. The tremor was epicentered approximately 17 km to the northwest of the city center, in a sparsely populated area between the working-class town of Acharnes and the Mount Parnitha National Park.
Overall, 143 people lost their lives and more than 2,000 were treated for injuries in what eventually became Greece's deadliest natural disaster in almost half a century. This event took Greek seismologists by surprise as it came from a previously unknown fault, originating in an area that was for a long time considered of a particularly low seismicity.
