On Kos over 120 people suffered, two died, on Bodrum, 70 people needed doctors. On Kos, many buildings were damaged. Tourists, vacationing in hotels, spent the night in the open air.

Underground tremors occurred in the sea at a depth of 10 kilometers. In the port of Kos, divers examine the platform to assess the damage caused to it. While the ferry service to the island is discontinued. Perhaps, for the mooring of vessels it will be necessary to build a temporary structure.
