Heavy overnight rain on 15th November caused flash flooding in parts of Greece, particularly Mandra, Nea Peramos and Megara, west of Athens.

At least 15 people have been killed and it has caused widespread destruction in central Greece as people were unprepared for the fast-flowing torrents of red mud that flooded the roads and thousands of homes. The sheer force of the water moved vehicles, damaged walls and roofing.
