Over 100 Homes Damaged In Flood

February 16, 2010 — A state of emergency was declared in Greece on Sunday after the Evros river overflowed.

Early Sunday, heavy rain in northern Greece cause the Evros river to overflow.

At least four villages in the area have been flooded as well as acres of farmland.

Most of the residents in the area have been forced from their homes and are staying in shelter elsewhere.

The Mayor of Lavara said people left with literally anything and everything they could carry in their arms.

Greek troops and firefighters are using row boats to conduct door to door searches for any residents who have been trapped in their homes.

Authorities are doing their best to sandbag areas to try and redirect the waters.
