‘The disaster is biblical’: Athens floods kill 15 after ‘unprecedented’ storm

(Worthy News) – Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Wednesday declared a state of mourning after a freak overnight downpour with the force of a “waterfall” flooded three towns near Athens, killing at least 15 people.

“At this time, declaring a state of national mourning over this great tragedy is the least we can do,” Tsipras said in a televised address.
