Storm eases in Greece but flood risk remains high

VOLOS, GREECE (AP) – Bad weather eased in central Greece yesterday leaving widespread flooding and infrastructure damage across the farming region, which has been battered by two powerful storms in less than a month.

Municipal workers were handing out bottled water in the storm-hit city of Volos, where power and water outages remained in some districts for a third day, while rescue crews used excavators to clear debris-strewn roads blocking access to remote nearby areas. The two storms, Daniel and Elias, struck central Greece and the island of Evia over three weeks in September, killing several hundred thousand farm animals and damaging highways, secondary roads and the rail network.

Despite the improving weather, the risk of additional flooding remains high in several central cities and towns as river banks remain vulnerable to high water levels, authorities said.
