    Torrential rains, which could cause flooding, began to fall on Greece on Monday, which is barely recovering from uncontrollable fires.

    Greece once again on alert in the face of storm “Daniel”. This Monday, the National Observatory of Athens, the Greek meteorological institute, classified the precipitation falling on the country at the highest level of risk: category 5, described as “extreme”.

    This violent phenomenon comes at a time when the immense fire which has been ravaging the Dadia national park in north-east Greece for two weeks is on the verge of being brought under control.

    “After the prolonged risk of fires, the Meteorological Service warns of severe bad weather which should affect our country in the coming days,” warned the government spokesperson.

    “The authorities are on alert (…) and we ask citizens to carefully follow the instructions given,” he added.
