Power Station Explosion

Massive Explosion in Cyprus

Cyprus has rocked by a massive explosion at  the Evangelos Florakis naval base in Zygi, A number of fatalities have been reported as a munitions depot explodes apparently caused by a brush fire.

 The fire spread to the nearby Vassilikou power station and cut electrical power to most of the Southern part of the Island.

Reports say that every window in a 5km radius was smashed and considerable damage was caused to property nearby, we have also been told that debris on the nearby motorway caused accidents.

Locals have just told  me that we could be without power for upto a month, but the power came on here in Pissouri at 14.15.
