Looks like Zakynthos bore the brunt of it this time:

Tornado sweeps through Zakynthos

The Ionian island of Zakynthos was struck by a tornado Tuesday morning, the fourth in a few weeks, uprooting trees, destroying rooftops and causing power cuts.

According to local reports, the tornado swept mainly through the areas of Lagana, Tsilivi and Vanatou shortly after 8 a.m.

No injuries have, so far, been reported.

Rain likely on Kef tomorrow morning, followed by mostly good weather for the next ten days or so...

Think the thunderstorms may have passed (for now) but very heavy rainfall possible tonight and tomorrow.

With thunderstorms around it may not be a bad time to buy a (good) surge protector for your PC, one with protection for your phone line, etc, as well. May not protect you from a direct lightning strike but better to have some protection than none. Various makes/models available, a little research probably in order - bear in mind even a 'good' one will probably need to be replaced every few years.

Weather to worsen with snow forecast for much of country

Following days of heavy rain in Attica and elsewhere, snowfall is expected in several parts of the country from Monday night, according to the National Meteorological Service (EMY).

Snow is forecast for mountainous parts in the country's north and western Macedonia, EMY said.

The temperature in those areas is expected to drop by between 8 and 10 degrees Celsius.

The cold snap is expected to spread to other areas, including mountainous parts of Attica late on Tuesday or early Wednesday.

Elsewhere in the country -- the Ionian... -- there will be rain and storms while winds will reach gale force of between 8 and 9 on the Beaufort scale.

Temperatures are forecast to clim to 39 degrees Celsius over the weekend.

Temperatures in Greece Expected to Rise Over 40 Degrees Celsius Starting Sunday

Another heat wave is expected to hit Greece starting this Friday, when temperatures will begin to rise into the high 30’s.

At the height of the heat wave, temperatures are expected to reach as high as 40 to 41 degrees Celsius.

Although the temperatures will soar in the coming week, meteorologists say that the heat will not be as scorching as the previous week where temperatures rose into the mid-40’s.

Weather service warns of downpours and hailstorms

A sticky heatwave that has gripped Greece since the start of the week will give way to thunderstorms and hail starting on Saturday night in northern parts, the national weather service, HNMS, warned on Friday.

Macedonia, Epirus, the western mainland, the islands of the Ionian... should brace on Sunday for gale-force winds and storms. Hail is also in the cards, the HNMS said.

The wet front will start spreading east on Sunday night so that by Monday most parts of the country will see a dramatic shift in conditions.

Civil protection authorities on Thursday ordered all schools to remain closed on Friday the Ionian islands of Zakynthos, Cephalonia and Ithaca, as well as in the town of Larissa, after meteorologists warned of more torrential rains and storms to come.

The decision comes a day after a weather system called Eurydice caused flash floods in western Attica that claimed at least 15 lives and caused widespread destruction.

Meteorologists are concerned that Eurydice may not have done its worst yet, as it is forecast to remain in the country through the weekend and may coincide with a Mediterranean hurricane called Xenon that appears to be on its way to Greece.

Somehow I seemed to have deleted Maik's latest weather warning, saying that Kefalonia may escape a storm and only have rain.
Sometimes they get their timing wrong. The weather on Sunday morning is currently sunny. Looking at the storms currently over Italy on the lightning site, I would estimate they will reach Kefalonia Sunday night.

No ferry service to Cephalonia and Zakynthos due to strong winds

The ferries carrying out the routes Poros-Kyllini, and Sami-Patras remain docked at the ports of Cephalonia due to the gale force winds blowing in the Ionian Sea.

Currently, strong winds up to 9 on the Beaufort scale are blowing in the Ionian Sea.

Gales forecast Sunday, Monday; sailors advised to exercise caution

Greece’s weather service on Friday issued an emergency bulletin warning of storms and gale-force winds on Sunday and through Monday.

The blustery weather is forecast to start in the early hours of Sunday across the islands of the Ionian...

With winds expected to reach speeds of as high as 9 Beaufort at sea, sailors in the Aegean and the Ionian are advised to check bulletins regularly and avoid unnecessary risks. Ferryboat passengers traveling to and from the islands should also keep an eye out for possible cancellations.

Weekend heatwave breaks 160-year record in Greece

Temperatures in Greece’s capital over the weekend were the highest on record for mid-May, according to the National Observatory of Athens, rising to nearly 37°C on both days near the Thission electric train area.

The thermometers showed that May 16 and 17 registered the highest temperatures since it began tracking temperatures in Athens in 1860.

Greece Braces for New Heat Wave This Weekend

On Tuesday (01-09) in the Ionian it will show a drop of 3-4 degrees.
https://greece.greekreporter.com/2020/08/28/greece-braces-for-new-heat-wave-this-weekend/

So far looks as though the current wave of high temperature, as defined by EMY, will continue to the end of the month, but that's not far away. Come September it starts to cool down a few degrees.

Warning issued as rare cyclone heads to Greece

A rare Mediterranean cyclone, dubbed Ianos, will land in Greece on Thursday, and will initially impact western parts of the country in the late afternoon, mainly the Ionian islands of Zakynthos, Cephalonia and Ithaca... according to a statement issued yesterday by Deputy Civil Protection Minister Nikos Hardalias.

Hardalias warned the public to be vigilant and take necessary precautions.

I don't want to go through a night like that again. I stayed on the boat until 3am, but was scared for my safety. Once off the boat I tried to stop it hitting the concrete quay for the next hour. It was completely wild with big waves in the harbour, not to mention the gale force wind and rain. I finally retreated to the car and checked the boat was still there every hour. Finally at first light, it had calmed down enough to go home.

Flights rerouted as Greece braces for rare 'medicane' storm

At least two flights were rerouted in Greece early Friday as the country braced for a hurricane-like storm lashing the Ionian Sea.

Two Ryanair flights to the Ionian island of Cephalonia were unable to land at the local airport and were rerouted to Athens.

The Mediterranean hurricane, or "medicane", was packing violent winds of over 100 kilometres (62 miles) per hour, according to the Greek civil protection agency.

Local residents have reported power outages, damage to roofs and falling trees.

A sailing boat moored off the island of Ithaki was carried away by waves but its two passengers managed to make it to shore, state news agency ANA said.

The civil protection agency has urged those in the storm's path to refrain from non-essential travel and avoid basements.

The civil protection agency on Thursday said it had relocated rescue teams with tracked vehicles to high-risk areas. Three rescue helicopters are also on standby.
https://www.spacedaily.com/afp/200918053127.e1ge7xb3.html

Glad the boat's OK, Roger - those in the Ag Ef pic expat's posted look a bit worse for it. Next task, when it calms down.... Katelios cat count. Hopefully all present and correct.

I wrote the above post as the eye was passing. Then the wind came from another direction with gusts of F12 (hurricane). Unfortunately while I was away from the harbour, my boat broke free and came to rest on a fishing boat. This caused damage to stanchions, pushpit and rudder box. Could have been a lot worse and there was plenty of help around. Work for the winter.

I believe that the island should have been declared a disaster zone, as had been suggested.

As an aside to this disaster, the swallows and swifts have taken a battering. There are thousands of bodies everywhere, even floating in the harbour. The ones that have survived are trying to keep warm and saving energy by roosting on the ground. The roads are warmest and then they are getting run over.

Looking at the devastation around the island it looks like a disaster zone. And at present it's looking like more thunderstorms to come: Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday - but just the usual thunderstorms. Forecast may improve as the days approach.

I just couldnt believe the news. We flew out of Kef on Saturday 12th September after the most  wonderful 2 weeks we have enjoyed on the island in all our 15 years of coming.  I havent seen any photographs of the damage in Skala and I hope all our friends are safe and well.  The taverna shown in the pictures of Katelios is now called Marias and we enjoyed a super meal there one evening, the trees are huge old euclyptus specimens.  After all the trials of covid 19 mother nature throws this at the island, she can be a cruel old lady!  We know the people of Kefalonia are a resilient lot and will fight to restore the island to all it's wonderful glory.  Our thoughts are with you all and we will be back in 2021.

Storms bring more heavy rain, high winds to Ionian islands

Just a few days after Cyclone Ianos wreaked havoc on several Ionian islands and in central Greece, stormy weather battered other islands in the Ionian Sea on Wednesday, provoking more flooding.

On Corfu, the fire service received numerous calls to pump out flooded homes and stores while similar incidents were reported on Paxos.

The General Secretariat for Civil Protection appealed to islanders to avoid unnecessary travel while the bad weather continues.

Western Greece to come under fresh storm pressure

The islands of the Ionian and the western mainland should brace for more storms starting on Friday night and persisting through Saturday, the national weather service, EMY, said, warning of strong downpours and winds reaching speeds of 8 on the Beaufort scale.

EMY said that the new wet front will sweep in from the southwest, hitting the Ionian islands – which have been battered by cyclone Ianos and storms in recent days – and Epirus on Friday night.

The Civil Protection Agency issued an advisory, meanwhile, warning residents and visitors in those parts of the country affected by storms not to venture outside without good reason or engage in unnecessary outdoor or marine activities.
