  • Description

    TORRENTIAL RAINS AND WIDESPREAD FLOODING HAVE CAUSED HEAVY DAMAGE IN AREAS OF CENTRAL GREECE IN THE PAST FEW DAYS. IN SOME PARTS, THE FLOOD WATERS HAVE INUNDATED VAST AREAS FOR THE SECOND TIME WITHIN TWO WEEKS.

    DAMAGE HAS BEEN HEAVY IN AND AROUND THE CITY OF PATRAS, IN SOUTHERN GREECE, WHERE HUNDREDS OF FAMILIES WERE LEFT HOMELESS ON SATURDAY. HUNDREDS OF HOMES COLLAPSED UNDER THE WEIGHT OF FLOODWATERS AND MANY MORE WERE DAMAGED BY FLOOD AND HEAVY RAINFALL. THE MAIN ROAD BETWEEN THE CAPITAL, ATHENS, AND PATRAS HAS BEEN BLOCKED, HAMPERING RESCUE AND RELIEF OPERATIONS.

    AFTER THE RAINS ON SATURDAY, THE HOMELESS PICKED AROUND THE DEBRIS TRYING TO SALVAGE WHAT THEY COULD. MOST OF THEM HAVE LOST ALMOST EVERYTHING THEY POSSESSED.

    IN THE SAME AREA, THIRTY FIVE HOMES COLLAPSED AND ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY SERIOUSLY DAMAGED IN WIDESPREAD FLOODING TWO WEEKS AGO (ON DECEMBER 17).
