    Almost 200 victims of the strong earthquake that jolted the Greek island of Lesvos on June 12, were forced to evacuate their temporary shelters.

    People whose homes were damaged had to take refuge inside their cars, in churches and even in the open as the agreement between the authorities and local hoteliers expired on June 30.

    According to the agreement local hoteliers undertook to offer temporary accommodation to hundreds of victims until the beginning of the tourist season on July 1.

    Most residents of the village of Vrissa who lost their homes to the 6.1 Richter have found shelter in hotels and rooms to let in the tourist village of Vatera.
