Greeks Turn to Social Media to find missing People from the deadly WildFire of Athens
A group of Greeks have created an electronic database with photos and names of missing persons following Monday’s devastating fires east of Athens. By late afternoon on Tuesday there were 25 people missing, whose names and photos have been uploaded to the database.
The authorities have yet to provide a number of the missing and are encouraging friends and relatives to provide details to the Fire Service, by calling the 199 number. However, many complain that their calls are being diverted to other agencies. Earlier, the Fire Service announced that the total number of dead has risen to 74.
