Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Evangelos Florakis Navy Base explosion was the worst peacetime military accident in Cypriot history. 98 shipping containers of gunpowder were accidentally detonated on the Evangelos Florakis Navy Base, owned by the Cyprus Navy, on 11 July 2011. The explosion killed 12 people, including Andreas Ioannides, the head of Cyprus Navy and Lambros Lambrou, the commander of the base. A further 62 people were injured. A power station producing 60% of the electricity in Cyprus was damaged and could not quickly be brought back online. Firefighters attended the base in the early hours of the morning to deal with a small fire in a storage area, and the explosion-apparently caused by the flames coming into contact with seized ammunition-occurred at 05:50 EEST. The Evangelos Florakis Navy Base is a Cyprus Navy base, situated near Zygi, between Limassol and Larnaca
