American missionary Lorenzo Warriner Pease was in Larnaca on this feast day: 

The Kataklysmos feast took place today, but as there is danger of the plague, the chief men requested the Archimandrite to petition the Governor to prevent a collection which he accordingly did. I am informed that it is not a religious festival, not observed by the church but that it has come down from the ancient heathen. Very few were present today.
