An ELTA announcement said that the mayor of Samos and an emergency rescue team (EMAK) provided invaluable help in transferring equipment from the damaged building to a temporary storage space, to facilitate transactions with the public.

All other postal buildings on the island are undamaged and operating normally (in Pythagorio, Pyrgos and Karlovasi). In addition, six postal agencies on the island are operating as usual.
