"The situation is under control," Alternate Citizen Protection Minister Nikos Toskas said on Friday in statements to radio station Praktoreio 104.9 FM.
Toskas, who rushed to the island early on Friday, said that life and normality are totally restored after the 6.4-magnitude quake that struck the island at 01.32 am.
"We are examining the damages. It is our responsibility to assess the damages and see how we can help the people. Life is returning to normality. There is no panic," the minister reassured.
