According to initial estimates, especially in Psachna and Politika most of the houses have been flooded and the rescue efforts continue, through water and mud, while after 8 in the morning the intensity of the rain slowly began to fall and the wave moved further south.
In Politika and Psachna but also in the wider area such as the villages of Steni, Pournos, Caterpillar etc.. there has been huge damage to both houses and infrastructure as well as the road network. The only positive sign is that it has stopped raining.
Earthmoving machines are already working on the main road to Politika to restore traffic.
They carry babies with digging machines!
As you can see in the pictures he recorded a little while ago, the crew of Star K.E.. rescuers carry civilians among them and babies with digging machines.
A super puma has been mobilized for air rescue as many people are trapped on their rooftops.
SOS has been broadcast by the president of the village of Pournos in the Municipality of Dirfion.
The village is blocked by water with dozens of elderly people trapped .
However, this is not the case in the south of Chalkida, where firefighters are unable to reach the houses because the roads are blocked and they asked for reinforcements from a helicopter to start freeing people from the roofs of the houses..
As it became known, a helicopter was deployed and will be there shortly to help, especially in Bourtzi and Lefkandi, as the road network has been damaged and the water does not allow the movement of any car. The only vehicles that have entered the area are earthmoving vehicles provided by the Region, while the rain continues with the consequence that there is no first assessment of the damage it is not possible for the Fire trucks to approach.

at the following points:
• in E.O.. Chalkida - Edipsos, from the 16th to the 45th km / h and
