A general view shows the beach Navagio following a rockfall, in the island of Zakynthos, Greece September 13, 2018.

One of the island's main attractions, Navagio has a shipwreck on the shore and is surrounded by steep cliffs.

Rescuers from the local coast guard and the fire department soon arrived on the scene to evacuate the beach and prevent boats from approaching.

A landslide over the iconic Navagio beach on Zakynthos island has reportedly injured three people.

"So far, we haven't found any trapped people but we will continue searching", a fire brigade official said.

The brief video clips included below show the moment the rockfall began, with tons of rock breaking away from the cliff face and falling onto the crowded beach in Zante. A few small boats overturned from high waves caused by the force of the fall, witnesses told authorities.

Landfall was expected sometime late Thursday and FEMA officials said Wednesday was the last day for people to get out safely. President Donald Trump declared states of emergency for North and SC and Virginia, opening the way for federal aid.

Among those injured was a 34-year-old Czech woman who had a fractured vertebra. The woman's husband and two children were hospitalized with minor injuries.

Authorities shut down access to the beach, which lies at the foot of a 200-metre (650-foot) cliff and is accessible only by boat, as a precaution.

Lynette Bridges, 58, said her tour boat had just pulled up on Zante's Shipwreck Beach when an enormous sheet of stone crashed into the sea, capsizing boats and flooding the crowded sands.
