The rivers bloated, the sea came into the … land, and the water dragged away what it found in its passage, flooding houses, shops, greenhouses and crops. Problems have also been caused to the road network due to landslides and subsidence. Indeed, in some areas the transportation was done by boats .

The fire brigade was necessary many times, as it had to do rescue operations, as people rode on rooftops to escape from the level of dangerously rising waters. In total, the fire brigade was called to transport 23 people safely, 11 to Sitia, 11 to Pilalimata in Lassithi and a driver who was driving in the area of ​​Tzermiado Lasithi and was trapped in his car.

Today, local rains are expected in Crete, according to the NMS forecast . However, the weather will show a new deterioration from the evening.
