Floods and Landslides Posted on 11 December 2012 by Robin Agiasos and Ambeliko suffered floods and landslides on 1st December. You don’t need to speak any Greek to know that this has broken peoples hearts. Please share with your friends.
This is devastating indeed. I had just been writing a short piece about Ambeliko when I found out about this awful devastation. It is such a beautiful village, at the heart of the island. It does seem as though no-one was hurt but hearts will be as broken as the streets & houses. Nature can be cruel. My thoughts are with the people of Lesvos.
I am so pleased to read on the Ambeliko village website that repair work is in progress, thanks in no small way to some generous donations from communities in Australia who have links with Ambeliko. It is heart-warming to know that the world cares for this tiny part of Greece. Perhaps there will be some local opportunity for visitors this year to make donations, however modest, to the continuing work to get life back to normality and repair the damages.
