Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Pireos Street Athens was tem­po­rar­ily closed on Satur­day af­ter a morn­ing down­pour caused traf­fic dis­rup­tions in var­i­ous parts of the cap­i­tal and also led to elec­tric­ity cuts. The road, which con­nects the port of Pi­raeus with cen­tral Athens, was flooded from the in­ter­sec­tion with Hamoster­nas Street to the in­ter­sec­tion with Petrou Ralli Street. Brief power out­ages were re­ported in the cen­tral sub­urb of Kal­lithea and Faliro in south­ern Athens, while the fire depart­ment re­ceived 15 call­outs for peo­ple stuck in el­e­va­tors due to power fail­ures.
