Bad weather in Greece has taken the life of another victim. After four people had died on the island of Rhodes ten days ago, last night the fire service found the body of a drowned woman in a basement in the city of Argos. The woman is of Serbian origin, 55 years old and lived in a basement in the city centre.
    Due to the heavy rainfall on Sunday afternoon and especially on Monday night, the two dry rivers running through the city, namely Kririas and Panitsa, had swelled. The city is in a state of emergency. The fire service received more than 40 calls for flooded buildings and was able to save 15 people whose cars had been swept away by the muddy river waters.


    The heavy rainfall caused problems in the region of Kiparissia too. The water had flooded the 64th kilometre along the Pyrgos - Methoni roadway and the traffic was stopped. Sliding rocks and large masses of mud closed the road to the town of Nemea too.
    The stormy winds broke down many trees in Kiato and Sparta. The situation in Athens was no different either as last night the road between the suburbs of Maroussi and Melissa in the northern part of the city was closed due to swelled waters.


    Three mountaineers who climbed Mount Olympus have been missing since Friday. The mountain rescue service has been searching for them with the help of a military helicopter.
    To be continued.
