    A state of emergency was declared on the island of Crete, where a strong earthquake with a magnitude of 5.8 on the Richter scale was registered this morning, ANA-MPA agency reports. One person was killed in the quake. 20 people were injured, the Associated Press reported.

    As a result of the quake, more than a thousand residential buildings are uninhabitable. The Minister of Climate Crisis and Civil Protection Christos Stylianidis, who arrived on the island, announced that a packing camp will be built together with the local and regional government, which will be able to accommodate 2,500 people.

    The buildings in the village of Arkalohori, which according to Stylianidis are older and do not meet the anti-earthquake requirements, are most severely affected. Residents of the capital of the island of Heraklion have received a message from 112 with a warning not to enter buildings damaged by the earthquake.

    According to Akis Celendis, director of the Institute of Geodynamics, the 5.8 magnitude earthquake was the main quake, and the aftershocks were secondary. According to him, the specific fault cannot cause an earthquake with a magnitude of more than 6, but due to its small depth there will be many aftershocks and people must be careful. Kindergartens and schools in the area will remain closed for two days.
