A series of mini-tsunamis hit the Greek island of Samos minutes after the strong earthquake measuring 6.7 on the Richter scale hit in the Aegean Sea between Greece and Turkey.
Footage shows water flooding the streets at the capital of the island Vathy. Tavernas, cafes and other shops were flooded as authorities called on locals to avoid the coast.
According to local media, a series of at least three tsunamis hit Samos.
