Today it’s raining both in Florence and Athens.. But today’s storm was the biggest since 1961 in Attica!
Roads remained closed, overflowed streams and areas were plunged into darkness.
Meteorologists refer to a phenomenal storm. In fact, the rain was so strong that in many areas the rainfall reached 75 mm. Overall, dropped 95 tons of water per acre, with official data so far.
