More snow in Greece continues to cause disruption
March 9th, 2011 by elisa

Yesterday ferry services were suspended from the ports of Piraeus, Lavrio and Rafina in Greece because of continued snow storms. Many roads were also closed in the capital and a handful of islands lost power.

Today, schools were closed and residents told to stay home where possible, but despite the continued snowfall there was a limited service from Piraeus. The islands of Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissus, Andros and Tinos are still experiencing severe power failures that could take until Friday to restore.

A planned public services strike set for today was cancelled to help tackle the situation.

Flights however are operating as normal out of Athens International Airport.
