Authorities declared an emergency in parts of northeastern Greece on Sunday after torrential rain caused flooding near Greece's border with Turkey and forced the evacuation of several villages. A man drowned outside Athens in an area also affected by the floods, police said. His body had not been identified. In the border Evros region, several villages and farms near the Ardas River were evacuated, as emergency workers struggled to reinforce its banks. Flooding blocked roads in the Evros region and caused power outages. Hundreds of homes and businesses were flooded in the area. Floods also affected areas in the southern Peloponnese region that were affected by massive wildfires in August.
