This is a report on a recent earthquake that hit the Greek city of Kalamata on Sept. 13, 1986. The earthquake, although, moderately strong-reported magnitude M s =6.2− caused heavy damage and killed 20 people. Strong-motion data are presented for the main event as well as from two recordings of the major aftershock. The records are interesting because they have been obtained at relatively small distances from the epicenter: approximately 9 km for the main event and 1 km for the major aftershock… Expand
THE AIGIO (GREECE) SEISMIC SEQUENCE OF JUNE 1995: SEISMOLOGICAL, STRONG MOTION DATA AND EFFECTS OF THE EARTHQUAKES ON STRUCTURES
On 15 June 1995, an earthquake of moment magnitude M w =6.4 occurred in the western part of Corinthiakos Gulf, Greece, causing the loss of 26 human lives and inflicting considerable damage mainly inExpand
The October 1988 Elia Prefecture Earthquake (SW Greece): Seismic Environment, Building Types and Damage Patterns.
TLDR
Strong motion records have been obtained near to the damaged region and this provides the opportunity to assess the extent of damage to various building types, and compare it with damage caused during another recent earthquake. Expand
A Theoretical Investigation of Source, Path and Site Effects During the 1986 Kalamata Earthquake (Greece)
SUMMARY On 1986 September 13 a magnitude 6.2 (Ms) earthquake occurred in the South Peloponnese (Greece) and severely damaged the town of Kalamata, In order to retrieve the acceleration levelsExpand
The Spitak (Armenia, USSR) Earthquake: Residential Building Typology and Seismic Behaviour.
TLDR
The structural characteristics of all the residential building types existing in the affected area are presented in terms of their seismic vulnerability and vulnerable points are discussed with a view to low cost interventions that will drastically improve the seismic safety of new buildings.

Seismic response of structures and infrastructure facilities during the Lefkada, Greece earthquake of 14/8/2003
Abstract A strong ( M = 6.2 ) earthquake struck the island of Lefkada (also called ‘Lefkas’) in western Greece on August 14, 2003. In this paper the seismic behaviour of the buildings andExpand
Seismic risk and loss assessment for Kalamata (SW Peloponnese, Greece) from neighbouring shallow sources
A large amount of new and existing data was applied, aiming at delineating structural seismic risk in the earthquake prone modern city of Kalamata (SW Peloponnese) that was largely reconstructedExpand
Local‐soil and source‐mechanism effects in the 1986 kalamata (Greece) earthquake
An Ms ∼ 6 earthquake, originating at a normal fault directly underneath the town of Kalamata, caused substantial structural damage to reinforced-concrete and masonry buildings, to contemporary asExpand

On November 17 2015, a strong earthquake of magnitude M6.4 was nucleated on the Lefkas fault, which is a right lateral strike-slip, almost vertical fault. The earthquake caused high damage at theExpand
Preliminary Observations on the August 14, 2003, Lefkada Island (Western Greece) Earthquake.
A few hours after the earthquake and during the subsequent three weeks, teams of experts (seismologists and civil engineers of the research staff of ITSAK) visited the meizoseismal area. ITSAK teamsExpand
