An alarm was sounded yesterday (22/12), when a new large landslide occurred on the Isthmus of Corinth.

The Canal, which was constructed in the late 19th century, has been vital to Greek and international shipping, as it connects the Gulf of Corinth in the Ionian Sea with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea.

It cuts through the isthmus of Corinth which separates the Peloponnese with the rest of the Greek mainland.

Local news source reports that landslides at the Canal have been occurring practically continuously since January, making restoring its functionality incredibly challenging for civil engineers and others working at the site.
