Problems in Northern Greece
It has caused many problems in several areas of eastern Macedonia and Xanthi the bad weather that has been going on since noon on Friday, while the authorities in Serres are on standby for possible movement of large quantities of water in the riverbed of Strymon from neighboring Bulgaria.
In the city of Xanthi the intense problems created in the neighborhoods of the city but also in main roads with many cars being swept away by torrents and ending in open ditches and potholes forced the municipality to seek the assistance of the Prosecutor's Office.
The municipal authority claims that the huge problem was caused by the works carried out for the installation of the gas pipelines but also by the delay of the contractor to restore in time the road. As a result, many roads and sections have been flooded, causing images of chaos in the heart of the city and neighborhoods.
In fact, the municipality of Xanthi with its announcement late last night made it known that a report was submitted to the Prosecutor of the Court of First Instance of Xanthi & # 8220; to avoid accidents to pedestrians and vehicles from the large holes that have formed in the city streets with a sufficiently deep depth & # 8221 ;.
In the city of Kavala the biggest problem is located in the coastal zone of the municipality of Paggaio and especially in the beach of Ofryni (Tuzla) in the wider area of Strymonikos gulf. Heavy and long-lasting rainfall resulted in the formation of torrents while the main road of the coastal tourist settlement was cut in places.

Intense local phenomenon in Ofrynio
In many points along Ofriniou beach, the provincial road network was inaccessible as floods had formed, while a junction of Egnatia near a rural area was closed.
As emphasized by the management team of the network of meteorological stations of Kavala, Meteokav.gr & # 8220; in Ofrynio, the station of the area recorded daily rain at the height of 129mm, 129 liters per square meter. The explanation lies in the fact that in the wider area, in addition to the passage of the disturbance from the southwest, a strong convergence of winds developed at the same time, which created individual very strong nuclei in the multicellular storm that was essentially moving with the disturbance. As a result, the phenomena in the wider area have a longer duration and intensity & # 8221 ;.
Problems were caused by the intense and prolonged rainfall in the city of Kavala where there were falls trees, while in many neighborhoods there was a power outage in public lighting in streets and neighborhoods.

Where we have now focused our attention is on the further shielding of the areas & # 8221 ;.
