The loss of life is increasing in the flood disaster that occurred in Greece after heavy rains caused by Storm Daniel. The lifeless bodies of two brothers aged 75 and 85 were found during search operations in Thessaly. Thus, the number of people who lost their lives in the flood disaster increased to 6. Greek media reported that the two women did not want to leave the house, and when the rescue team went to the house after their relatives were worried, they were found dead. “Rescue teams will continue door-to-door searches in villages where electricity has been cut off and evacuate those trapped to safety,” Greek Minister of Climate Crisis and Civil Defense Vassilis Kikilias said last night. Kikilias said the most serious situation was the collapse of a dam and the overflowing of a river between Trikala and Karditsa.
A bridge collapsed and electricity poles were toppled due to Storm Daniel, which has been in effect since Monday. Streets, alleys and houses were flooded and dozens of vehicles were swept away in flood waters. There was major damage to infrastructure. While fire and rescue teams and the army continue to work in flooded areas, helicopters and boats are trying to reach the most remote areas of Thessaly.
