Kef fire risk 18/09/22: Medium

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.8954 GBP
1 €UR = $ 1.0292 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1168 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9716 €UR

Based on Alpha Bank exchange rates, these are widely used by exchange agencies in Greece.
Other banks likely to offer a different rate which may be marginally higher or lower.
Banks and foreign exchange offices normally charge standard 2% commission.
You may get a better rate changing your holiday money in advance at e.g the
Post Office.
NB: some f-ex agencies advertise "No Commission".
Invariably, they deduct commission before they (don't) advertise the rate.
Foreign exchange offices are businesses, not charities.

Japan storm: Millions told to evacuate as Typhoon Nanmadol makes landfall

One of the biggest typhoons ever to strike Japan has made landfall on the southern island of Kyushu.

Typhoon Nanmadol has brought winds of at least 180 km/h (112mph) and some areas could see 500mm (20 inches) of rainfall over today and tonight.

At least four million people have been told to evacuate their homes.

Extensive flooding and landslides are expected, while bullet train services, ferries, and hundreds of flights have been cancelled.

Not just your passwords, by the way the article reads, but other personal info such as name, address, bank information, etc.

Bush fire over Xi / Lixouri way, sounds as though it might be near Kefalonia Garden Village.
