Earthquake causes serious drinking water problem in Greece

Greece
Athens. A strong earthquake, which rocked Greece on Sunday, has caused a serious problem with the drinking water in the country, the Greek radiostation Skai reports.

The earthquake was registered at 7.14 local time in the region of the Peloponisos peninsula and was felt in the whole country, even in Italy. Since its depth was 60-70 km, there were no casualties, nor devastation. But now there are problems with the drinking water in the region of Leonidio.

The waters of the Lerna River are murky and this river feeds several towns and villages with drinking water. Meanwhile the water in Leonidio has turned red since fresh water has mixed with soil.
