Several hours of heavy rain and a thunderstorm in the Greek capital Athens have flooded roads and homes, caused traffic jams and disrupted the train and tram network, officials say.

The deluge inundated basements and forced authorities to close underpasses and a central subway station.

The fire department said it had received at least 600 calls to drain water from houses and businesses.

Many of the city's streets remain ankle-deep in water.

"It was one of the worst thunderstorms we have ever had in the greater Athens area [since 1961]," fire department chief Sotiris Georgakopoulos told NET state television.

At one point the rainfall was so intense that parked cars were swept away by racing waters.

"There are cars immobilised on several Athens highways and we have dispatched tow trucks to clear the roads," senior traffic police officer Dimitris Papanagiotou told NET.

Fire chiefs say that they have about 60 crews tackling the floods which they expect to recede throughout Friday.

No injuries have been reported.

crazy sh@t! I heard a plane from mitili to athens couldnt reach the airport (it shook them a lot) and they went to land in Crete!

Seems bad, neighborhoods that don't usually get flooded were affected too as it seems, can't imagine how bad it is in the north-west suburbs where the infrastructure is traditionally bad.

Ok this is a crazy rain! In Athens it started at 4 in the morning with big booms every few seconds.. and it keeps on for 5 hours with the same tense. Many roads are flooded, the rivers (esp. kifissos) is close too..
This is damn crazy for us here (and for February). I really think they do something with the weather.check the photo here

Greece is a client of Weather Modification Incorporated. They've gone from being a country with very little rainfall diring the winter months with no rain at all usually between late May and late October to having a huge increase in rain particularly this year.

Flash Flood in Greece on Friday, 22 February, 2013 at 10:04 (10:04 AM) UTC.

Description
Torrential rain caused widespread flooding in many parts of Attica on Friday with the fire service receiving more than 400 calls to pump out flooded basements or rescue stranded vehicles. The rainfall, which started in the early hours of the morning, flooded several roads with the areas of Aegaleo, Nikaia, Haidari and Peristeri in the western suburbs among the worst hit. The rivers of Ilissos and Pivrodafni both broke their banks with witnesses reporting seeing parked cars being swept away in the Pikrodafni River. Several roads were closed off including Pireos Street due to heavy flooding at the Hamosternas junction, NATO Avenue near Aspropyrgos, Dimokratias Street and coastal Poseidonos Avenue near the junction with Syggrou Avenue. The Athens-Corinth national highway was flooded at the Skaramanga junction and parts of Piraeus, Drapetsona and Kalamaki were also badly affected with several reports of people trapped in their cars. The flooding caused problems with the operation of the Athens tram and led to many buses being taken off the roads. There were some disruptions with ferry travel. Flooding at electricity substations in Terpsithea and Korydallos caused power cuts early in the morning but power had been widely restored shortly after 10 a.m.

Several hours of heavy rain and a thunderstorm in the Greek capital Athens have flooded roads and homes, caused traffic jams and disrupted the train and tram network, officials say.

The deluge inundated basements and forced authorities to close underpasses and a central subway station.

The fire department said it had received at least 600 calls to drain water from houses and businesses.

Many of the city's streets remain ankle-deep in water.

Terrible indeed, she was trapped in her car and when passerby tried to help her she panicked and lost consciousness and then died on the way to the hospital. Doctors believe it was a shock and heart attack, but the exact cause will be verified later.
