6.7 Earthquake hits the Dodecanese Islands – Turkish border region.

At least two tourists have been killed and around 200 others injured after a powerful earthquake shook the Greek Islands and Turkish coast, triggering a small tsunami.

The 6.7-magnitude quake struck in the Aegean Sea on Thursday night south of the Turkish city of Bodrum and east of the small Greek island of Kos – both areas popular with British holidaymakers.

The earthquake triggered a small tsunami that caused flooding in Bodrum and parts of Kos, which took the brunt of the impact with significant damage to buildings.

Tens of thousands of tourists spent the night outdoors on Kos, many sleeping on sunbeds along beaches and in squares.

Yellowstone earthquake swarm slowing, but ongoing

Almost 770 earthquakes have been recorded in Yellowstone Park over the past two weeks — more than normal but not a sign of volcanic activity, scientists say. The swarm, which began June 12, is ongoing, though the frequency of earthquakes has slowed down a bit. Typical swarms comprise 10 to 50 quakes. So far, five quakes have measured in the magnitude 3 range and 64 in the magnitude 2 range. The other 699 have been measured at magnitude 1 or less. It seems like the quakes are tectonic in origin, there is no volcanic signature to any of the events.

Earthquake and Tsunami in Greenland

A tidal wave struck a settlement on the northwest coast of Greenland late on Saturday. As a result of an earthquake measuring 4.1 on the Richter Scale, a tsunami-like wave and flooding struck a remote hamlet about 30 km from the village of Nuugaatsiaq in Greenland two days ago. The authorities are now busy evacuating the inhabitants, and so far 39 out of the village’s estimated 100 residents have been taken to Uummanaq. Reports indicate there have been a number of people killed, but so far the police have not released any casualty figures.

6.4 Earthquake hits near the coast of western Turkey.

A powerful earthquake Monday afternoon killed a woman and damaged buildings on the Greek island of Lesbos. The earthquake, magnitude 6.4, was centered south of Lesbos in the Mediterranean Sea, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Shaking was also detected in nearby Turkey and on the Greek mainland. “Most of the houses in the village of Vrissa … have been badly damaged by the earthquake,” Lesbos Mayor Spyros Galinos wrote. He told local media that it looked like the village had been “flattened by bombs.”
