mandra - The Greeks take the damage after the storm that cost the lives of fifteen people. Especially in Nea Peramos and Mandra, west of Athens, mudslides caused havoc: damaged cars and mangled furniture lay in streets full of blubber on Thursday.

Residents reacted emotionally to the devastation. 'We are ruined. My tavern and house are gone, 'said an entrepreneur in Mandra. 'Everything is gone. The road is gone. The water is still flowing and last night and this morning new floods occurred. '

Another man from the place was forced to have slept on the roof. 'We used carpets to cover ourselves,' he said. It is still unclear how big the total damage is. Officials expect to be able to say more about this when the bad weather is over.
