Fourteen people have died as a result of heavy rainstorms and subsequent flooding in Greece, Turkey, and Bulgaria, and more deaths are expected through at least Thursday afternoon.

Near the capital city of Volos and in Karditsa, three people died as a result of Greece’s record-breaking rainfall.

Thousands of homes in central Greece were still without electricity and running water as of Wednesday. Itzik Zuarets, a reporter for Israel’s Kan News, was in Euboea, the second-largest Greek island and one of the hardest hit by the storm.

He claimed that hundreds of Israelis are attempting to flee the area but are having a difficult time doing so because of the damaged bridges and roads.

Food and water are in short supply, and the majority of the Greeks and Israelis in the region lack electricity due to the harsh conditions. Israeli Michal Shalem told Channel 12 News that her family is stranded without electricity in a place where all the roads have been washed away while on vacation in the Pelion region of Greece.

Additionally, food is running low, but the nearby stores are closed. Another Israeli family claimed to be stranded in a hotel without access to a grocery store.

Smadar Imor, an Israeli, told Kan that it was impossible to travel by car because of the extensive damage to the roads and highways.

We went to the store to buy some water bottles because we are currently without water and electricity.

She added that she and her family “have the feeling that everything that could have been destroyed was destroyed, but we don’t know how long the supply there will last.”
