What would happen in Attica in the event of a Daniel-type storm? The National Observatory has unveiled a detailed flood simulator that is causing… concern.
The Research Director of the National Observatory of Athens, Haris Kontoes, presented a complete flood simulation in Attica, on the “Arena” show of ANT1.
Setting the parameters and a series of critical elements in the appropriate scientific program, it seems that they “redden” entire areas bordering the stream of Picrodafni, in Kallithea.
As it seems, if a “Daniel” type of bad weather were to happen in Attica then areas like Picrodafni, Moschato, Paleo Faliro would be flooded.
The points of high vulnerability are also presented, as well as an analysis of the demographics of the population that will be affected.
The map presented specifically shows the building blocks with maximum vulnerability, but also which streets are expected to flood in the event of severe weather, as well as residences, especially those located in stream beds.
Two scenarios of what would happen in the event of an extreme phenomenon were examined, the first with the assumption that a flood would occur every 50 years and the second every 1,000 years.
