Greece is hit by a "medicane", a rare meteorological phenomenon accompanied by torrential rains and violent gusts.
This Mediterranean hurricane is expected in the Athens region on Friday night.
Floods, power cuts, falling trees: from Zakynthos to Kefalonia, via Corfu, the paradisiacal islands of the Ionian Sea, between Italy and Greece, were not spared.
The hurricane, named Ianos, is expected to hit western Greece with the same intensity before reaching the Peloponnese peninsula.
The Athens National Observatory predicted “another 36 hours” of difficult this morning.
