Tents Set Up for Residents of Southern Crete Regions Hit Most by Earthquake

September 28, 2021

HERAKLION, Greece — Authorities set up tents for residents of Arkalohori in the southern part of Crete, after an earthquake registering 5.8 on the Richter scale shook the island on Monday morning.

One person died while repairing a church rook and nine people were injured, one seriously.

Arkalohori homes sustained heavy damage and are unsafe. Armed Forces, volunteers and members of the Hellenic Red Cross set up a temporary tent camp for Monday night. Climate Crisis and Civil Protection Christos Stylianides is in the region since Monday afternoon, heading the team that oversees the work.

Tents were also set up at villages along the municipality of Minoas Pediadas, where homes have been damaged.

Stylianides said that at least 40 engineers will arrive in the area on Tuesday to inspect the buildings for damage.
