Assessment of flood damage in central Greece


As efforts continued on Tuesday to restore access to remote villages after flooding from Cyclone Ianos over the weekend, state engineers began the process of assessing the extent of the damage to houses and crops so that those affected by the storm can be compensated.

In the central town of Karditsa alone – one of the hardest hit areas with around 5,000 houses damaged – more than 2,000 companies have asked for compensation.

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis met with representatives of local businesses on Tuesday during a visit to the region.

Many mountain villages in the wider Karditsa region remained isolated due to the flooding, while six residents of the small village of Oxia were evacuated by helicopter.
