ISLAND OF KOS
Life back to normal
Life on Kos returns to normal two days after the deadly earthquake and several aftershocks that keep seismologists and the authorities on alert.
Two aftershocks hit the Greek island of Kos on the weekend just days after a 6.7 magnitude earthquake killed two people and injured nearly 500 others, two of them in critical condition.
The first aftershock, of 4.4 magnitude, hit the island about 8 p.m. and was followed 16 minutes later by a 4.6 magnitude tremor, the Athens Geodynamics Institute reported.
The island airport is operating as normal and all domestic and international flights are being carried out.
The main port on the island of Kos, which was damaged in Friday’s earthquake, will be temporarily repaired with a cement ramp that will allow ferry boats to dock, authorities announced on Saturday evening.
For tourists, life on the island is as desired and many of them continue their holidays undeterred by the event.
Greek media reports, were also referring to large numbers of Australian tourists who lived through the horrific experience.
