In case you're thinking of nipping down to Myrtos for a bit of sunbathing and swimming today, well, bad news: access is prohibited due to expected severe weather conditions. Similarly, Kastro and other archaeological sites closed today.

Currently the thunderstorms are forecast to continue through to the early hours of Monday morning.

On the brighter side: the risk of bush fires on Kef today is rated as "Low"  :)

Looks as though Kef may escape the threatened thunderstorms as the chance of thunderstorms today now assessed as 21%. Tonight and over night the chance of thunderstorms is rated around 75%.

Pyromania Unchecked: Impunity for Arsonists Who Burned Greece

For 20 years, Greece has failed to punish almost any arsonists who've destroyed many of the country's forests, some of which saw development for profit, but the New Democracy government said that will change after another series of devastating wildfires this summer.

The Conservatives have brought a new penal code with stricter penalties but Kathimerini said that its review of past cases going back to 2000 shows governments and courts letting arsonists get off scot-free.
