A week after devastating floods in Thessaly, in which 15 people died and an Austrian couple are still missing, villages remain sealed off, while water and electricity problems continue for thousands of households.

So far, the Civil Protection forces have proceeded to rescue 4,543 people, the press representative of the Fire Department, Giannis Artopaios, said yesterday afternoon.

According to him, there are difficulties of approach to Vloho, Farkadona, Transformation, Pineida, Beautiful village, Amphitheatre and Platycampo.

In other areas such as Palamas, Marathea, Korda, Koskinas, Kalogriana, Pedinos, Megala Kaliviainquiries are being conducted door-to-door and are expected to be completed soon.

Additionally, in the regions Homology, Kouloura, Messagala, Alexandrini and Stomio the Civil Protection forces are on alert, monitoring any development of the flood phenomena.

To Alcohol the water level dropped to 8.2 meters with a warning limit of 6.6 meters.

The damage to homes, businesses, crops and livestock is incalculable. The entire Thessalian plain has turned into a vast kingdom of mud, and to all this comes the risk of infectious diseases.

In the meantime, the Special Interbranch Nuclear-Biological-Chemical Defense Response Company of the GHETHA is moving to the affected areas with appropriate logistical equipment. Its mission is the installation of five staff and media disinfection stations in the wider area, in which the workshops of the Armed Forces personnel operating in the affected areas will be disinfected.

Citizens may also be disinfected in consultation with the local authorities.

The country is cut in two

The waters have also caused serious problems on the Athens-Thessaloniki National Road since the traffic ban on the Aegean Motorway is still in effect due to extensive flooding in the Gyrtoni-Sikouri area (H.T. 366) while the water and electricity supply problems are serious. Traffic is possible only on the Thessaloniki – Leptokarya section and from the Nice Larissa junction to Athens and vice versa.

There are also problems on the Athens-Thessaloniki railway network.

The lack of drinking water in Volos continues – Struggle for the restoration of the road network in Pelion

Many villages of Pelion continue to face serious problems for the 6th day. For one more day, Zagora looks like a bombed out landscape. Rocks have dislodged and cut in half the road network that connected Volos with Northern Pelion. Soils and even trees have been washed away while roads have given way.

The image is also chaotic in Milina. Overturned cars remain on the beach front while some that were swept away are still in the sea. However, the road connection Milina – Trikeri in South Pelion has been restored and the machines of the Magnesia Region and the machines of the Magnesia Region are trying to reach Zagora and then to Horeftos in order to restore the connection with Volos. Similar efforts are being made to connect Makrynitsa.

Residents of several villages in Magnesia continue to have a serious problem with water supply, with normality expected to return after 15 – 20 days. The water is not potable and reaches the homes of some areas of Volos on a timed basis. Then it is discontinued and many health agencies and scientists talk about unfit water even for domestic use. Dozens of crews of the Municipality of Volos are working to clean districts such as Palia, Neapoli, the Old Port Authority, Inopneuma and areas around the “Old City” Shopping Center that have been overwhelmed by mud and similar efforts are being made on roads and bridges swept by the Krausidona river when it overflowed and carried everything away, flooding the city of Volos.

Incalculable damages, which have not been assessed, have been suffered by the Tsalapata Complex which is a Multisite of Museums of Culture and Industrial Tradition, and with many luxury catering and entertainment shops, but also the building complex of the 1st and 4th EPAL of Nea Ionia which also houses the 1st Public IEK Volos. Especially the school complex has been completely destroyed both in terms of buildings and the equipment that was there.

For its part, the Central Port Authority of Volos, with its announcements, draws attention to all vessels moving in the Pagasitikos because due to the weather and floods, the torrents that flow into the Pagasitikos brought down from the slopes of the mountains huge quantities of transported materials and large floating tree trunks in the sea and may cause damage in case of collision with them.
