Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A pas­sen­ger ferry is moored at the port of Skope­los yes­ter­day as a Siberian weather front brought snow­fall to the western Aegean is­land – the heav­i­est in 30 years, ac­cord­ing to lo­cals. Author­i­ties on the is­land were strug­gling to keep roads clear of snow and main­tain ac­cess to the lo­cal health cen­ter and he­li­pad, they said. Skope­los and nearby Alonis­sos were left with­out a ferry con­nec­tion to the main­land. Ac­cord­ing to me­te­o­rol­o­gists, the bad weather is set to con­tinue through Wed­nes­day. Many schools across the coun­try, in­clud­ing Athens, are due to be shut to­day.
