Thousands of buildings in Cyprus are at the mercy of a major earthquake, according to the Cyprus Civil Engineers and Architects Association (CCEAA).

In a letter to the Communications Ministry and the House Communications Committee, the CCEAA have urged for the necessary legislative amendments to enable regular building inspections and the issuance of a relevant certificate of inspection as preventative measure against dangerous and catastrophic situations.

An example of which was the collapse of a balcony in Limassol on August 11 where, fortunately, there were no victims.

According to CCEAA chief Platonas Stylianou, a large number of buildings in old Nicosia and along the Limassol coastal road are susceptible to seismic events.
