It's 9th July of 1956 and the time is 05:11. An earthquake of 7.5 degrees in the Richter scale leaves Santorini in a devastating state. 12 minutes later an aftershock of 6.9 Richter terrorize the locals. 35% of the houses are collapsed and 45% suffer severe damages. A tsunami of 25 meters hits the nearby islands and breaks many boats in ports all over aegean sea including Crete. 53 fatalities and 100 injured added in the final sum of the disaster that nature brought upon Santorini to show its power over people. That was the largest earthquake in Europe in the 20th century.
