Cleanup op­er­a­tion be­gins as Halkidiki counts cost

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Peo­ple in many parts of Greece spent yes­ter­day as­sess­ing and re­pair­ing the dam­age caused by two days of bad weather, which also claimed a life. In the Sitho­nia penin­sula of Halkidiki, which was hit par­tic­u­larly hard by flood­ing on Mon­day, the mu­nic­i­pal­ity asked that a state of emer­gency be de­clared as crews cleared streets. Sev­eral roads and ho­tels were badly dam­aged in the flood­ing, which also caused rock­falls. Farm­ers in Ser­res and Pieria also suf­fered ex­ten­sive losses in crops and equip­ment as a re­sult of down­pours and hail. Mean­while, a 58-year-old man who went miss­ing on Sun­day and was found dead on Mon­day is thought to have been struck by light­ning.
