Heavy rains in northern Greece have claimed a victim: a 49-year-old man was travelling with his son in a car when suddenly the swollen river carried off the car and he lost control of the vehicle. The incident occurred in the region of Oreokastro municipality. Firefighters intervened and managed to save the 19-year-old boy.

The Hellenic Fire Protection Service said they had received 85 calls for assistance in the regions of Thessaloniki, Kilkis and Pella where rainfall has been particularly intense.

In northern Greece today meteorologists expect rainfall to be particularly heavy and intense in some areas, but maximum temperatures will remain normal for the season - about 26 degrees. Bad weather will gradually reach Athens, where local storms are also expected in the afternoon and evening hours, and the maximum temperature will be 29 degrees.

In northern Greece tomorrow, Tuesday, the weather will remain bad, while in Athens and in the southern part of the country it is expected to improve.
