The hurricane Ianos, which hit western Greece with the force of the hurricane, has caused storm damage in the islands of Kefalonia, Zakynthos and Ithaca, according to the news agency Reuters.

According to the Greek authorities, the wind speeds between the Ionian Islands and western Greece were close to 30 meters per second.

Due to the storm, a state of emergency was declared for the islands of Kefalonia, Zakynthos and Ithaca on Friday.

Rescue officials said at about ten o'clock in the evening they had received more than 600 emergency calls for storm damage.

The majority of the tasks involved clearing fallen trees and pumping flooded water into homes and business premises.

A rare severe storm in the Mediterranean, the medica, is not known to have caused injuries, but in places road infrastructure and water mains have been damaged.

In addition, electricity has been widely cut off and boats have sunk, at least on the islands of Kefalonia and Lefkada.

At noon, the medic reached the western parts of the Peloponnese, but weaker than expected.

According to the news agency Reuters, similar cyclones such as Ianos have been present in Greece since 1995 and in recent years they have become more common.

The previous medic struck Greece in 2018.
