Floods in June?
« on: June 13, 2016, 03:13:21 PM »
The videos and photographs showing todays storm look horrendous. I hope everyone is OK and no property has been damaged. I also hope that the beach isn't going to be worse in the aftermath!!.

 I have just had a message from georgos goudellis who you know runs the Malibu and he said that everyone is fine, but yes it is a bit of a mess on the front near the Mirage

The Sea Front is a mess , indeed , but nothing that will phase the locals - "Normal Service will be resumed ... and all that"

Over 3 hours , this morning, we had around 70 mm rainfall, which will give all an indication of the deluge.
(Our 6 inch guttering around the house was not big enough to handle it)

Anyway , we sit now with a dry 25 deg and all look forward to much clearing up avrio.

Cheers
Negg

Yes, I hear it was quite a storm with flights having to divert to Athens.

These lovely people here are amazing, yes quite a bit of devastation but everyone out clearing up. Digger already out clearing all the debris on the beach and by tonight you wouldn't have known there had been a storm!
Power on and off at intervals but business as normal.

Hi Terry,
Where did you see the videos and pics of the storm?
Any chance you can post a link?

I saw the shocking video of the 'little stream' next to the Mirage. Its usually full of Terrapins and frogs......... but it may have washed away some nasty mozzy larvae.  Hope everything is back to normal for the owners sake's locally. I will have to look for the photo's that Jo mentioned.

The road near the bridge is badly damaged, and only passable by one car at a time.
But there is a new lagoon, by the damaged road which has a load of fish in it. Must be clean water then!
