Multiple large aftershocks have struck Greece’s Kos island, home of the majority of damage from this week’s 6.6-magnitude quake that left two tourists dead and hundreds injured.

The latest aftershocks, a magnitude-4.4 and magnitude-4.6,  struck Saturday evening, sending people racing from their homes and resorts, and out into the streets as they feared further building collapses.

As the earthquake hit, people gathered at the Kos Airport fleed the building, and officials were working to confirm the integrity of the structure.
