Storms lashes parts of Greece, one dead


The driver of a car that was swept away by floods in northern Greece was found dead on Sunday after heavy storms hit parts of the country on Saturday, causing flooding, police said.

The body of the 55-year old woman was found near her car in the village of Skotina by the fire brigade.

On Saturday heavy rainfall in western and northern Greece caused some rivers to swell, flooding villages and homes with the fire brigade receiving over 900 calls for assistance with fallen trees and flooding.
