    Two people on the Greek island of Kos died after a earthquake struck between Greece and Turkey. Multiple people have been injured while roads and buildings on the Turkish coast and Greek islands sustained significant damage.

    ​The earthquake led to a small tsunami in nearby Turkey but reportedly did not cause major damage. 

    The casualties occurred on the Greek island of Kos, a major tourism destination, the island's mayor said. Several people on the island have also been injured, according to reports. 

    ​The island of Rhodes was also impacted. 

    ​The same earthquake caused damage in both Turkey and Greece. 

    The tremor was registered at a magnitude of 6.7, the US Geological Survey said. 

    A Grecian fire department managed to save three people who were stuck in a damaged building on Kos.
