The baby’s parents were unharmed.Hours earlier, a man and woman in their 80s were found unconscious by firefighters in two houses in the same village, the spokesman said. They were confirmed as dead at the hospital. The ANA news agency said a helicopter had spotted the missing woman, who had been swept away by the floodwaters from her home in Bourtsi.Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis voiced his “profound pain for the loss of lives” and said he would visit Evia, Greece’s second largest island after Crete, on Monday. ‘A nightmare’ Torrents of water blocked roads in the west of Evia, which lies about 100 kilometers (60 miles) northeast of Athens. Some tourists were unable to leave one campsite on the island, ANA reported.”We are experiencing a nightmare, we are using every possible means” to combat the floods, said Ana Fanis Spanos, a lawmaker from the central Greece region.Storm Thalia battered several regions of mainland Greece Saturday, though the weather was improving on Sunday.Hundreds of homes were flooded in Politika and several surrounding villages. Blocked roads prevented fire trucks from reaching the affected sites.Two rivers burst their banks and filled roads with mud, local authorities said. The ground floors of many houses were flooded.Manos Anastasiou, a hotel employee in Politika, told AFP how astonished he was at seeing so much rain in such a short time.”I’m 51 years old and it’s the first time I have seen something like this,” Anastasiou said.About 100 firefighters and two helicopters as well as the coastguard were deployed to rescue those trapped.Deputy minister for civil protection Nikos Hardalias, who visited Politika Sunday morning, said more than 350 millimeters (13.8 inches) of rain fell in six hours. “Everything happened so suddenly. It’s a disaster,” he said while expressing concern about climate change.Flooded homes are a frequent occurrence in Greece due to a lack of adequate controls over construction and planning.In November 2017, floods killed 24 people in Mandra, a village in an industrial region 30 kilometers west of Athens. Torrents of mud poured down over thousands of buildings, homes, shops and factories. Two other people who died, a 74-year-old man and a 73-year-old woman, were from the village of Bourtsi, the ANA news agency reported.The five dead were among an earlier official toll, which also listed one person as missing, following torrential rains late Saturday and early Sunday.In a new toll, firefighters said seven people had died — but gave no immediate details of who they were — and that one person remained missing.One woman was found after being reported missing.last_img read more

After the meeting, Hunter agreed to drop the language, House and Senate officials said. Hunter’s spokesman had no immediate comment.

WASHINGTON – The chairman of the House Armed Services Committee abandoned a plan to give the military recreational use of 53,000-acre Santa Rosa Island after senators warned him Friday that the provision could trip up a major defense bill. Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., instead agreed to a deal offered by House Democrats to pursue the idea as stand-alone legislation after Congress reconvenes next year. His agreement cleared a final glitch for House and Senate negotiators putting the finishing touches on a defense policy bill lawmakers want to use to ban cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment of terrorism detainees in U.S. custody. Hunter wanted to turn Santa Rosa Island, 40 miles off the coast of Santa Barbara County, into a recreation destination for disabled veterans and others. His proposal would have allowed hunting of nonnative elk and deer on the island to continue indefinitely, even though a court-ordered settlement calls for it to end in 2011. Environmentalist say the animals are harming the island’s natural environment and native species, and also were concerned Hunter’s plan would have amounted to putting the island under military control and keeping the public out. last_img read more
