VIDEOS: ‘Hephaestion’ storm settles over Chania!

With Greece firmly in the grip of the new cold front ‘Hephaestion’ on Monday, most of the country experienced rain, sleet, snow and icy temperatures, especially the eastern mainland. Stormy conditions also prevailed at sea, with the National Observatory of Athens weather stations recording winds speeds reaching 161 km/hour in Paximada, Karystos and 147 km/hour south of Tinos on Monday morning.

Snow was falling in five prefectures of Central Greece, with snow chains or snow tyres needed in many parts of the road network. In Attica, the Penteli-Nea Makri road was closed due to the snow.

A sailing ban was imposed at the Attica ports of Piraeus, Rafina and Lavrio due to winds reaching 11 Beaufort in the Aegean.

Snowfall confined to Attica, Viotia and Evia and the mountains of Crete.

Strong rains in the Aegean and especially Crete, where problems occurred. Areas of northern Greece may had sunshine but temperatures remained low.

  1. Your right the old De-facto is a by gone favorite, waters not as cold/ price increase’s / and the crowds are down .. I still have the old Menu/ Hope the Owl stay put ! I’m still getting use to the individual olive oil packet , and have to ask for more all the time , it’s not getting any better / salad have changed, service is going down hill / parking craze with the daily elimination of our favorite parking spots , some idiots on a anti parking mania / some Liberal idiot is in control (when there should be an increase there eliminating it daily every where. ) every corner/ why /?? whos the idiot same clown that made the one way streets ? or those idiot stop signs . Why don’t they put a stop the out-of- control building.? Might help the traffic Grid lock!

  2. I was wondering if any of the Cafe’s where open along this roadway / my “Old Defacto” now defunct sold out /With a new name unrecognizable they even have new water bottles/ and quality is down so are the patron’s…. Price escalated as well.!
