Dozens of people evacuated on the Greek island of Evia after storms and floods

Authorities on the Greek island of Evia said several areas were being evacuated following the second severe storm in less than a week.

Dozens of residents were moved out of their homes in the north of the island and were making arrangements to stay with friends or in hotel rooms reserved by the regional authority.

Northern Evia, about 130 kilometers northeast of Athens, suffered devastating fires during the summer, leaving the area most vulnerable to flash floods.

Storms hit the Greek capital this week, causing traffic disruptions and some road closures.

The government issued alerts to affected areas, urging people to “avoid unnecessary movement and areas that have been or may be flooded.”

The weather in the country is expected to improve by Saturday.
