Greece recently found itself at the mercy of an adverse weather phenomenon named storm Daniel, which unleashed heavy rainfall and thunderstorms across the mainland, and Northern Sporades regions. The National Observatory of Athens’ Zeus lightning-recording system tallied an astonishing 7,000 lightning strikes during this tumultuous event.

While the rainfall was catastrophic from Monday evening to Wednesday, the affected area of Volos and of the Sporades islands have shown remarkable recovery. By Friday, the skies have cleared, and the area was bathed in its characteristic sunshine once more. The brunt of the damage was borne by the villages perched high in the mountains, where roads have crumbled under the relentless deluge and still many recovery attempts are being made. Another heavily affected area is the south of the Pagasetic Gulf, near Trikeri. However, the city of Volos itself has quickly returned to semi-normalcy.

Power and water services have been promptly restored, and citizens have wasted no time getting back to their lives. However a lot of damage has been sustained on some roads and streets, specifically around the Palea area.

Good news came from Skopelos Loutraki, where reports indicated that the situation had been rectified. Electricity and telecommunications are back in operation on the islands, and most shops and restaurants have resumed their regular operations. And of course vessels have also resumed all sea routes.

Sailing in the Sporades, a beloved activity for many, has resumed its enchanting course with end of Season Discounts up to-50% Off in September & October.
