Androulakis Αsks EU Commission to Support Those Impacted by Storms on Crete

October 17, 2022

ATHENS – Opposition PASOK-KINAL leader Nikos Androulakis tabled a question for the European Commission on Monday on the possibility of supporting those impacted by the severe storms and flash flooding on Crete at the weekend.

Androulakis expressed his condolences to the families of the two citizens that died during the storm in Agia Pelagia, Crete, and his support to locals struggling with the serious damage inflicted by the storm and floodwater to houses, businesses and infrastructures in the regions of Heraklion and Lasithi.

The MEP and opposition leader, in his question, asked the European Commission to examine the possibility of offering emergency economic aid to those affected.

“I send my condolences to the families of the victims. The damage is biblical and demands immediate support of the stricken residents and entrepreneurs. Climate change will multiply the extreme weather phenomena and we must invest on prevention,” Androulakis said.
