A new drone video shows the size of the destruction caused by a landslide that occurred on Friday night on Greece’s Lesvos island, near the famous town of Plomari.

The video was recorded by a drone belonging to scientists and geological experts from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.

Huge rocks fell from a hill overlooking the town and crashed down on the buildings beneath the mountain, fortunately resulting in no fatalities but causing a great deal of property damage.

The authorities have already decided to evacuate 29 buildings in the area, fifteen of which are private homes.
