More than 100,000 animals killed in the Thessaly floods; starvation risk for surviving livestock


More than 100,000 animals have been killed from the floods that swept Thessaly and parts of Central Greece with the mayor of Tyrnavos, Yiannis Kokouras, noting that "if there is no immediate aid in animal feed, then the livestock that survived the disaster will die of starvation."

The flooding has struck a huge blow to livestock and agricultural production not only for the region but for the whole country.

Farmers and the agricultural sector in general are the main victims of this tragedy.

"Large livestock units were lost and unfortunately it is the period of the production process. Rural and country roads were destroyed. Thousands of acres of farmland are under tons of water. The winegrowers cannot reach their vines as the grapes are now being harvested." added the mayor.
