Bad weather hits Greece with snow and low temperatures
Snowfall and freezing temperatures have hampered traffic in some parts of the country as a result of the new wave of bad weather that has hit Greece as of late Wednesday.
Cars moving on Parnitha Avenue will need snow chains on Thursday. The ferry service from Rio to Antirrio, linking the Peloponnese with the mainland, remains closed because of strong winds blowing in the area. Strong winds also led to cancellation of boat schedules from the Attica mainland to and from the Saronic Gulf.
In northern Greece, the Kavala-Prinou and the Keramoti-Thassos port schedules have also been cancelled.
