A large oil spill was spotted off Kythira island on Saturday afternoon.

The oil spill, longer than 1,000 meters, was possible caused by a ship which emptied a large amount of oil in the sea. Due to the adverse weather conditions, the satellite could not record the incident.

The mayor of the island Efstratios Charchalakis in statements to ANA-MPA underlined that the damage caused is very serious, especially at the village Agia Pelagia, where the spill has reached the coast.
“You cannot stay in the village as a result of the smell of the oil,” he noted adding that the walls of the houses are also black as strong winds are
blowing in the area.

The Port Authority has taken a sample of oil spilled into the sea for analysis.
