The impact of Ianos, the Mediterranean cyclone that hits western Greece was recorded by locals and the images are revealing.
In Kefalonia in Agia Efimia, Karavomylos, Lixouri and Skala the residents woke up this morning (if they slept) and saw these images. The rain has not stopped nor is it forecast for the next few hours. The meteorological station of Faraklaton recorded that 100 tons of water fell per acre!
Throughout the island of Kefalonia from early in the morning there are power supply problems in many areas, as power pylons have broken. According to the mayor of Lixouri, George Katsivelis, 70% of Kefalonia is currently without electricity. The cause is the fall of trees and pylons of PPC from the cyclone. The crews are stuck due to the intensity of the phenomena. Speaking to the First Program he said it could take up to 2 days for the damage to be fully repaired.
Hundreds of trees and branches have also fallen, causing problems on the island’s road network.

The biggest problem occurs in Agia Efimia of the municipality of Sami, where the heavy rainfall combined with the high intensity of the winds created torrents with mud and carried materials.
Also in the same area, according to information from the municipality, the strong winds, which during the night reached 11 Beaufort, took three sailboats ashore and at least four more have sunk in the port. In Agia Efimia, from the torrent that was created, there was an influx of water in shops.
