Torrential rain fell on  western Crete all through Friday night  and continued on Saturday morning. Many properties were flooded, roads were waterlogged and landslides were reported on the national road.

More than 30 emergency calls were made to the emergency services and strong winds are making the problems worse, with increased risk of falling trees.

The amount of rain water was so much that  in several provincial roads the road surface was severely damaged.
