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.
