Parking lots and basements flooded and streams overflowed by the intense weather phenomena that hit Attica on Thursday afternoon. The problems mainly occurred in the northern suburbs.

Roads in Kifissia, Maroussi, Melissia, Vrilissia and Penteli were turned into rivers within minutes and dozens of vehicles sank into the muddy waters.

The fire brigade received more than 200 calls for assistance and the pumping of waters.
