The report outlines how in theory both the intensity and the frequency of the earthquakes should go down, although the potential for aftershocks still exists.

The last tremor of greater intensity, measuring 3.5 on the scale, took place at 4:19 p.m. this Tuesday with its epicentre in Santa Fe, preceded by another of 2.9 registered at 2:27 p.m. in Chauchina.

According to the general director of Civil Protection and Emergencies, Leonardo Marcos, the size and frequency of the tremors are likely to continue to decrease in the coming days, although nothing can be guaranteed in this regard.
