Authorities are assessing damage in Greece after heavy rain caused flash floods in Athens on Friday, uprooting trees and damaging roads and homes, the Times of Malta reports. Significant flash flooding in the Greek capital resulted partly from the remnants of Hurricane Gonzalo, which passed over Bermuda and plowed over Europe earlier this week.
Greek Authorities say that the flooding led to damage in several places including Peristeri, Ilion and Parama and swept away at least 250 cars. Emergency crews were called to pump water out of at least 800 homes and businesses. Prime Minister Antonis Samaras has pledged aid to affected areas.
