Storm “Elias” brought torrential rains and floods again in the area of the Greek city of Volos and the island of Euboea within a month.
Just two weeks ago, Central Greece was flooded by the Mediterranean cyclone “Daniel”, which caused over 2 billion euros worth of damage and claimed 16 lives.
Overnight in the municipality of Lamia in central Greece, dozens of trucks were unloading materials to strengthen the dikes of the Sperchios River and avoid flooding in the wider area. According to meteorologists, the station in Vateri on the island of Euboea (north of Athens) recorded 227 liters per square meter until 12:00 today.
In the central part of the island they report rainfall within 160-200 liters. This is half of the annual amount of precipitation that falls in this area.
