Greek flooding leaves 2 dead, 1 missing; 600 others rescued

A storm has pounded parts of central Greece, creating flooding that killed two people, left 1 missing and forced emergency workers to rescue more than 600 people

Authorities identified the two victims as an elderly woman found dead in her flooded home in the region of Thessaly and a 63-year-old shepherd swept away by rising floodwaters. They also said a woman who is missing ignored instructions by firefighters and police not to drive into an area where a bridge spans a river.

Greece’s train operator, Trainose, said service linking southern and northern Greece was suspended.

The storm is projected to move on to the Greek islands, including Crete, shortly.
