Showers and hail throughout Crete. Major problems in Heraklion
Winter is here for good! As National Weather Service had predicted, showers, heavy rain, thunderstorms and even hail, are the characteristics of the weather.
Strong hail, torrential rain and winds, created a harsh winter landscape at Heraklion. A Condor flight from Dusseldorf arrived delayed at “Nikos Kazantzakis” airport, due to bad weather. Two cars collided at Papanastasiou Av. when their drivers tried to avoid a fallen tree. Several stores and houses at Pateles, Giofiro and Knossou Av., flooded.
Heavy rain also in Chania and Rethymnon. Drivers must be very careful.
Showers will continue all night long throughout the island.
