In the meantime, problems have arisen over the passage of "Victoria" in the Sougia region. As you can see in the photos above, the torrent reached the sea cutting the road in two, while the beach disappeared.

In Kalyves, a wall that holds part of the coastal road is about to collapse.

On the Chania-Rethymnon highway, in the area of ​​Kavros, heavy rain and hailstorms caused traffic problems due to limited visibility.

Due to landslides there is a traffic problem also in Kissamos and in particular in Plokamiana and Sfinari, with City workers fighting to clear the road.

Gavdos is also shut off, as it is prohibited to sail for the ship "Daskalogiannis" of ANENDYK.
