Two people have been confirmed dead and many others injured in a 6.7 magnitude earthquake, which hit popular tourist areas in both Greece and Turkey.

The shallow quake was felt in Greece’s Kos and Turkey’s Bodrum, Marmaris and Datca early this morning.

Mayor of Kos, George Kyritsis, is reported as having said that the popular island well-frequented by Aussie and British tourists, sustained damage during the quake, which resulted in the death of two people.

“We have two dead and some people injured so far.”

He continued, saying that for the moment ferries will be unable to dock at the island’s port due to structural damages.

Over in Turkey, authorities have confirmed no deaths or major damage, but have warned locals of potential aftershocks and avoiding any damaged or vulnerable structures.

Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) continues to advise Australians to exercise a high degree of caution in Turkey and exercise normal safety precautions in Greece.

However, the UK’s foreign office has issued a statement notifying citizens of aftershocks and urging them to follow advice from local authorities.
