Tsunami Alert Signs Cause Negative Reactions on Greece’s Kos

Two new tsunami warning signs were recently put on the island of Kos, sparking negative reactions primarily among tourist businessmen on the popular Greek island.

Following a request of the Mayor of the island, the European Union‘s Joint Research Centre and the Greek National Tsunami Warning Centre decided to put two electronic warning signs in central spots on the island, to alert people in case there is a chance of a tsunami.

However, these signs have sparked controversy, as Constantina Svynou, the president of the local union of hotel owners, claims that the signs simply ”terrorize” tourists for no obvious reason.

Kos endured a small tsunami of 1.5-meter high wave in 2017 after a strong earthquake hit the island.
