An 86-year-old man and his wife, 85, as well as an 8-month-old baby, have been found dead in their flooded homes on the island of Evia, in central Greece, after a storm hit the island overnight, authorities say.
According to the fire service, they have responded to 139 calls, of which 35 concerned people trapped in their homes. The rest were calls to drain flooded homes.
When the storm first broke out around midnight, the fire service had to respond to about 50 fires caused by lightning.
The worst of the flooding is now to be found south of Halkida, in the areas of Bourtzi and Lefkanti. The storm is expected to abate around noon.
