Three people dead after heaviest snow in a decade hits Greece

THREE PEOPLE DIED in Greece after heavy snowfall not seen in more than a decade fell and gale-force winds hit, disrupting road and sea transport as well as halting Covid vaccinations in Athens.

Snow blanketed ancient monuments like the Acropolis and the cold front – dubbed ‘Medea’ after the mythical Greek sorceress of the Argonauts – sent temperatures plunging, with a maximum low of minus 19 degrees Celsius in the northwestern city of Florina.

On the island of Evia near Athens, two elderly men suffering from respiratory problems died after their breathing apparatus failed during a power outage, state TV ERT reported.

On Crete, a livestock farmer in his 60s was found dead in the snow outside his granary at the village of Kaminaki in the east of the island, TV ERT added.
