Floods have forced residents in western Greece to flee their homes, just days after seven people were killed in a separate storm that hit the northern part of the country.
Usually hot and dry during the summer, the bizarre weather has damaged roads near the cities of Nafpaktos and Patra, although no injuries or casualties have been reported.
However, many homes and shops in Nafpaktos have suffered from flooding, a fire service official told Reuters.
The floods come just days after seven people, including six tourists, were killed on Thursday when a violent storm struck northern Greece.
