Strong winds buf­fet sea in Xy­lokas­tro

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Strong winds buf­feted the sea in the coastal town of Xy­lokas­tro, near Corinth, yesterday. Northerly winds made for choppy seas across much of the Aegean yesterday with winds reach­ing up to 9 on the Beau­fort scale in parts. Strong winds made life dif­fi­cult for fire­fight­ers on Crete and near Ioan­nina, north­west­ern Greece, yesterday, fan­ning the flames of the blazes which had been brought un­der par­tial con­trol by late af­ter­noon. The fire ser­vice is to re­main on standby to­day when winds are ex­pected to be strong in many parts of the coun­try.
