Abstract: A strong earthquake (Mw=6.6) occurred on July 20, 2017 (22:31 UTC) in between Bodrum town (Turkey) and Kos (Greece). The earthquake caused a Tsunami which affected the coast of Bodrum peninsula and the northeast coast of Kos island. One person lost his life in Kos due to the Earthquake. A post-event Tsunami Survey was conducted by an international team, composed of representatives from Turkey (KOERI, METU, Local Authorities of Bodrum) and Greece (NOA and Local Authorities of Kos) and the JRC from European Commission. From the collected information, the Gumbet Bay area, close to Bodrum, is the most hit and damaged by the tsunami with more than 1.9 m of flow depth at a certain location and the inundation reached up to 60m. The island of Kos was hit by Tsunami and Earthquake: most of the damage occurred in the port where a wave height of about 1.5 m has been detected. Several boats have been relocated or damaged. A complete report has been produced by the Survey Team
