High Whirlwind in Lefkimmi

Post by Chris » Tue Nov 25, 2008 4:43 pm




The following news article was taken from the online Greek/English newspaper, "The Corfu Today", dated 25th November 2008.


WHIRLWIND HITS LEFKIMMI

Tornado swept over everything in Lefkimmi this morning, causing extensive damage. Trees were uprooted, roofs of houses and other buildings fell, even a cemetery did not escape the fury of the elements of nature.
The Prefect Steph Poulimenou rushed to the area with collaborators in order to learn about the magnitude of disasters.
Serious damage has been the network of DEI, for the restoration of which rushed past 14 technicians in the region.
The force of the whirlwind left almost nothing standing by the St. Gordio Dragotinon to the port of Lefkimi. More than ten columns of PPC fell 2-3.000 olive trees were uprooted, while large losses suffered by the Sacred Temple of Taxiarxes in Dragotina. Losses suffered by mill and the house of legislation. A caravan of a British owner was at least 4 km from its stationary position. Any effort to address the serious problems that have occurred since the first time teams of the municipality headed by Mr. Kouri (the mayor is absent for the conference of KEDKE). Also assisting, was the fire crews, the Ministry of ELAS and residents, particularly youth in the region.


If any of our members living in or near the region in this story can give any facts on this, and photos if available, the forum will be very appreciative. I have been reading about the storms and seeing pictures on other forums. Hope everyone is safe.

Yeiamas, Chris
