We are prohibited by the police to go home.
Although we left Thasos island early in the morning, we are delaying because we are told that Evia has flooded and it is in a state of an emergency.
We have come here to Kamera Vourla where I am writing this, and Yianni is on the phone with the police. In the beginning – some hours ago there was no answer at all. Everyone was out helping. The last 45 minutes we are told to wait, and wait.
Yianni asks a friend of ours to check on the house
We don't know much of what is happening, and my daughter and son keep calling us to give us the latest news and pictures as they see it on TV.
I try to forget the incident for a couple of minutes, and I take a couple of photos from the round area until we get that phone call telling us that everything is ok.
Kamena Vourla is a tourist costal area. Both Greeks and foreigners visit it the whole year round. A few kms from this village there are some hot springs as well.
In the area there are a couple of campsites, although I don’t know if campsites are so popular nowadays since hotels were not very expensive, at least this year!
The house is ok! My God…we are at ease now, but still worrying as to what we shall find on the way home.
