Civil Defense: No damage recorded so far from the new earthquake
"The seismic activity is very intense lately in our area, the earthquake can occur at any time of the 24 hours."
No damage has been reported so far following the Civil Defense's communication with the Limassol and Paphos District Administrations and subsequently with other relevant services such as the Police and the Fire Brigade, according to Civil Defense Spokeswoman Olivia Michael.
In her statements to KYPE, Ms. Michailidou stated "we contacted all the competent services and fortunately no damage has been caused that worries us".
He added, however, that it proves once again that the seismic activity is very intense lately in our area, stating at the same time that the earthquake can occur at any time of the 24 hour period.
That said, "what we always have in mind is that the earthquake is unpredictable and that as it has been proven by the scientific data so far, observations are made and some statistics come out, however all this can not lead us to conclude whether we will have or not an earthquake ", adding that the earthquake can occur at any time and we can know neither the epicenter, nor the magnitude, nor the intensity, since everything that is recorded is recorded a posteriori.
Ms. Michailidou stated that the Civil Defense in case of an earthquake activates the special national plan "Egelados" which includes all the procedures followed by all the involved services, about 40 in total, to deal with the effects of an earthquake.
As mentioned in case of an earthquake, the Civil Defense activates its teams to participate in the various incidents that may occur, such as searching and rescuing people under the rubble, to host our fellow human beings who due to the earthquake may need to be temporarily housed in other places. , for the provision of First Aid and in general for the provision of support to the victims.
