Flash floods caused by heavy rains have submerged large areas in northwestern Greece, forcing authorities to evacuate hundreds of people from several villages in the Epirus region. By Sunday, at least four rivers had overflowed their banks. Near the city of Arta, a famous 18th-century stone bridge was destroyed by the flooding. No one was reported injured.
