Heavy Rains and Floods Hit Western Greece (video)

    Heavy rains brought havoc to many parts of western Greece, with the prefecture of Aitoloakarnania particularly affected.

    Local authorities say that heavy flooding has hit the towns of Agrinio and Mesologgi.

    Emergency services responded to dozens of calls by residents requesting assistance to prevent the flooding of their properties.

    The pouring has triggered a rapid rise in the water level of the rivers in the region.

    There have been no reports of injuries.

    Meteorologists say that the wet weather front will move towards central and eastern Greece from Monday.
