100 year-old Bridge collapses in CRETE as torrential rain floods Chania and Rethymno (video)
One person is missing, a historical bridge collapsed and landslides occurred on the national road after torrential rainfalls have been striking the island of Crete.
The Keritis Bridge in Chania (Crete Island) had been in place for over 100 years and had been a part of the history and transportation of the area!
The bridge, which had been in place for over 100 years and had been a part of the history of the area, is no longer there, as it was drifting by the river.
The situation is extremely difficult throughout the Prefecture of Chania, as landslides and rocks have occurred also on the national road.Authorities repeatedly call on motorists to be cautious at least for the next six hours, as the extreme weather phenomena will keep striking the island.
It is the second time in less than two weeks that the island of Crete is hit by powerful rainfalls causing severe damages in the infrastructure.
