The pictured building on Plapouta Street in Exarchia is one of 13 derelict structures that are to be demolished in the wake of concerns following last Friday’s 5.1-magnitude quake in the capital. Municipal authorities have ordered that the buildings – in Exarchia, Monastiraki, Petralona, Aegaleo and Piraeus – be torn down amid fears for their stability following the temblor. Two buildings collapsed, in Drapetsona, near Piraeus, and in the capital’s Petralona neighborhood, during Friday’s quake. [Intime News]
