Storm causes power outage in central Athens


Crews from Greece’s electricity distribution agency DEDDIE were called in to restore power to the area around Athens’s Syntagma Square on Monday afternoon after a medium-voltage power line stopped working due to bad weather, the state-run Athens-Macedonian News Agency reported.

Greek media reported that the power cut affected the Finance Ministry, where the electricity supply was restored after 10 minutes.

Brief power outages were reported earlier in parts of Mandra, western Attica, and the towns of Rafina and Mati on the eastern coast of Attica.
