One person was killed on the island of Evia. He is a 69-year-old farmer whose car was swept into flood waters. He was reported missing Thursday evening. When the water rose, the man hurried to save his animals. His body was found at the bottom of the river.

Rivers also rose on the island of Corfu. Many farms were flooded and animals drowned. The authorities also reported mudslides that closed roads. A state of emergency was declared on the island, on Thursday evening, and 69 people were evacuated.

Heavy rain in Greece. “These phenomena are unprecedented.”

A total of 30 million tons of water fell into the Kifissos River Basin on Friday, the head of the Earthquake Planning and Protection Organization, Professor Efthimios Likas, said on Friday.

These phenomena are unprecedented. We deal with who is to blame and who is not, and our efforts end there. In the meantime, we are in a new phase, in the phase of the climate crisis, and new structures are needed, Lekkas said in a TV interview.
