One Dead As Floods Cause Extensive Damage Across Crete (video)
Flooding from the winter storm “Oceanis” killed one person and extensive damage was recorded on bridges and roads in Crete as the extreme weather which began on Sunday continued to pummel the Greek island.
The body of a 61-year-old farmer who went missing when his car was swept away by the force of a rain-swollen torrent was recovered on Tuesday, about 10 km (six miles) from the spot where his car was picked up by the raging waters. The fatality occurred on a rural road near the swollen Vatoudiaris River in Crete.
The Athens National Observatory recorded more than 250 mm (9.9 inches) of rainfall in the region during the last three days, an amount which is equal to the total precipitation Chania receives in several months.
