According to the Deputy Regional Director of Ilia, in NW Peloponnese, Vassilis Giannopoulos, the man who died was in his car when it was carried away by floodwaters in Vrachnas, northern Ilia.

In addition, Vergas river overflowed despite having been cleaned and heavy machinery was called in to avert the flooding of Manolada, in a major producing region of Greece, he told the Athens Macedonia News Agency.
