Heavy snow is capturing the imagination of Athenians as the Greek capital has turned into a winter wonderland, and the camera lens of Greek City Times has captured the best photos as Elpis storm rages across the country.
At 10:30 in the morning, the Civil Protection sent, through 112, a message to the residents of Attica, warning of heavy snowfall in the coming hours.
According to Greek meteorologists, today and tomorrow there will be very strong weather phenomena with unprecedented heavy snowfall in areas of the country where, usually, Greece does not have similar weather phenomena.
The Hellenic Police Headquarters advises citizens, who live in Attica and especially in the northern suburbs, where there is heavy snowfall, as well as in areas throughout the territory, where extreme weather phenomena occur, to avoid unnecessary movements.
In any case, it is reminded that information about traffic jams as well as useful tips for road safety, due to bad weather and severe weather, are available in a special banner on the website of the Greek Police.
Due to the bad weather, traffic jams have been caused on the main roads of the northern suburbs.
The Athens-Lamia National Road remains closed from the height of the Kalyftaki bridge and from the Inofyta junction in the current to Athens. The rest of the vehicles are driven using anti-skid chains.
