Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Mo­torists queue to board a ferry at the port of Pi­raeus yes­ter­day as the fi­nal ma­jor ex­o­dus for the sum­mer peaked. Ac­tiv­ity at the coun­try’s main port was up an es­ti­mated 15 per­cent com­pared to the same pe­riod last year, with some 100,000 pas­sen­gers ex­pected to board fer­ries for the is­lands be­tween yes­ter­day and to­mor­row. A heat wave that has gripped the coun­try for the past week is set to start eas­ing to­mor­row when lower tem­per­a­tures and storms are fore­cast for some parts, par­tic­u­larly in the north.
