Drone footage shows the damage inflicted after a rare storm, known as a Medicane (Mediterranean hurricane), pounded central Greece on Saturday flooding streets and homes.

Cyclone Ianos has battered areas north of Athens as well as the beaches on the Ionian islands of Kefalonia and Zakynthos.

At least two people have been killed.

Since the storm first hit Greece on Friday, the fire brigade said it had received more than 2,450 calls for assistance in just over 24hrs to rescue trapped people, cut down trees, and pump out water from homes and stores.

The electricity grid was struggling to cope, and the network had been damaged in Karditsa
and the Ionian islands.

Five vessels sank off Zakynthos and Lefkada on Friday, the coast guard said.
