Tourist injured by fallen tree in western Peloponnese

A 32-year-old tourist was injured on Thursday morning when a tree fell amid a storm on her tent in a camping site in the region of Ilia, in the western Peloponnese.

The woman, whose nationality has not been disclosed, was transferred to a hospital where doctors said she had fractured her leg.

The storm that hit parts of Ilia and the municipality of Zaharo – where the tourist had camped – early Thursday morning, caused power outages and uprooted trees.

Deputy regional governor Vasilis Giannopoulos told state-run news agency ANA-MPA that the storm had also caused damages to some greenhouses in the area.
