It's raining hard again now and the lightning has been going for almost 4 hours but never close to us. Power going down every few minutes for a second or two. Big ones coming back again, time to unplug the modem before electric goes down again. Bye.

I don't think the North has suffered at all from the storms of the last two nights, although they seem to have suffered more in the large storm just over a week ago. It's rained quite hard but not enough to cause damage unless your roof leaks.

Loutses is fine and not washed away just yet !! I live there and have not seen any damage apart from maybe a few leaking roofs. The power is out again this morning though.

We had heavy rain again this morning, storms stopped after about 1am. Had a fifteen minute spell of sun this morning but now it is looking black again.
Waiting for another lull then going out to pick up some basics to stock up. Think it best to be prepared in case it does continue as its forecast to stay the same for another seven days or so. Have both electric and water on at the moment and Go Broadband has stayed on whenever we have the leccy...so doing well with that. Feel safer at home in the storms, the lightening is spectacular, but when it comes that close its a bit too exciting!
Do you all want me to continue updates?

We have power in the south (Vitalades) again now. Went off last night had a storm again with lots of thunder and lightening and heavy rain most of the night a few roofs have been damaged again but nothing else thankfully. Some of the roads are flooded but the sun is out again so they should dry up soon

This may be an odd way of expressing myself, but I should explain that I had in mind, whatever next? After the fire storms, wind storms, now water flooding - some the worse in living memory say some folks-there cannot be more surely? It was not an attempt at humour.
We have a modest holiday home and like others in this position, worry about about about the weather wreaking such havock. Of course property damage is of considerable less consideration when compared to injury or loss of life. And many thanks are due to the folks that are helping on the ground so to speak, including the fire fighters.

We have had a few hours lull in the weather so we have been out and stocked up on supplies and petrol. Also called at friends houses who are away to make sure the properties are okay. Thankfully all was well. Still some mud and water along the roads and loads of rocks and gravel. The flood water seems to be soaking away fast near Sinarades.
It struck us last night that the ferries and flights are unlikely to be on in this kind of weather so a good idea for us to get stocked up for a while. It turned a bit cool this morning, down to 15 degrees for a while but now climbing back up again. It is currently 19 degrees in Sinarades.
Have some great photos of the storm clouds around Ropa valley and Paleo this morning so will post them later.
