After Wildfires, Torrential Rains Flood Homes in Greece
Greece suffers floods that have drowned homes and killed animals.
As if Greece hasn't already suffered enough from wildfires that have torn down hectares of land, not much recovery period was given before the European country experienced floods from torrential rains.
Houses are burdened the most, as calls of desperation to rescue civilians and pump out water were on the rise.
Until now, at least one man has been killed as the water drifted his car away, rendering the 69-year-old missing since Thursday. Police reported that rescue crews found his body on a riverbed. He was a farmer who was rushing to take care of and protect his herds on the eastern island of Evia, near the capital, Athens.
In addition, many farm animals have also drowned in the disaster, in addition to homes in Corfu, an island in the west.
Employees who work in the private sector were asked to work from the comfort of their homes; schools and public spaces and institutions closed down on Friday.
