According to the Emergency Weather Deterioration Bulletin issued by the National Meteorological Service (EMY), the weather will deteriorate from Thursday night (09-01-2022) until the morning hours of Saturday (09-03-2022) with heavy rains and storms in Western Macedonia, which will be accompanied by a high frequency of lightning, hail and temporarily, during the phenomena, by strengthened gusty winds.

More detail:

From today evening (01-09-2022) heavy rains and storms are predicted in the northern Ionian, Epirus and western and central Macedonia.

Tomorrow Friday (02-09-2022) strong phenomena will affect Macedonia, from midday Thessaly and until late afternoon the northern Ionian and Epirus.

On Saturday morning (03-09-2022) the heavy rains and storms will be limited to central and eastern Macedonia, eastern Thessaly, the Sporades, the northern Aegean and Thrace and will quickly weaken.

The Directorate of Civil Protection has informed the competent services involved, as well as the municipalities, so that they are on increased civil protection readiness, in order to immediately deal with the effects of the occurrence of intense weather phenomena.

At the same time, the General Secretariat of Civil Protection recommends that citizens be particularly careful, taking measures to protect themselves from risks arising from the occurrence of severe weather phenomena.

In particular, in areas where heavy rainfall, storms or gale-force winds are expected to occur:

  • To secure objects which, if carried away by severe weather conditions, may cause damage or injury.
  • Make sure that the gutters and downspouts of the houses are not blocked and are working properly.
  • Avoid crossing torrents and streams, on foot or by vehicle, during storms and rainfall, but also for several hours after the end of their event
  • Avoid outdoor work and activities in marine and coastal areas during severe weather events (risk of lightning strikes).
  • Take shelter immediately during a hailstorm. Take shelter in a building or car and do not leave the safe area until they are sure the storm has passed. Hail can be very dangerous for animals too.
  • Avoid passing under large trees, under posted signs and in general areas where light objects (e.g. pots, broken glass, etc.) can become detached and fall to the ground (e.g. under balconies) .
  • To faithfully follow the instructions of the local authorities, such as Traffic, etc.

Citizens can also be informed about self-protection measures against severe weather phenomena on the website of the Region of Western Macedonia, at the online address: www.pdm.gov.gr/politiki-prostasia/
