ATHENS — The bad weather on Monday created problems with the power supply in several parts of the country, including the northern suburbs of Athens, the island of Evia, the Sporades islands, and villages near Karditsa, Thiva, Arta, Pilio, Ioannina and Karpenissi.

Areas facing problems in Attica included Varibobi, Aspropyrgos, Avlona, Malakasa, Dionysos, Drosia, Agios Stefanos, Anixi, Kalamos, Markopoulos, Ekali, Pikermi, Rodopoli and Stamata. They are mostly caused by falling trees damaging power lines.



ATHENS - The politically volatile European Parliament elections, a time during which no candidate wants to make waves, has led to Greece temporarily setting aside development of wind farm projects that had been viewed as essential to developing sustainable sources.
