Officials on the Greek island of Evia said many areas were evacuated after the second severe storm in less than a week.

Dozens of residents have moved from their homes in the north of the island and are making arrangements to stay with friends or in hotel rooms booked by the regional authority.

North Evia, about 130 kilometers northeast of Athens, suffered devastating fires throughout the summer, leaving the area more vulnerable to flash flooding.

Storms have battered the Greek capital this week, disrupting traffic and closing some roads.

The government issued warnings to the affected areas, urging people to “avoid unnecessary movements and areas that are or may be flooded.”

Weather in the country is expected to improve by Saturday.
