March storms have damaged part of the seafront road in Petra and caused further damage on the road to Eftalou.
Lesvos Mayor Dimitris Vounatsou visited Petra on Saturday 23 March with other officials to view the situation. As well as the damage that can be seen in these pictures, large piles of sand, rocks and seaweed was washed onto the main road making it impassible. An urgent clean up was put into place to ensure that the Independence Day celebrations could take place.
The coast road between Molyvos and Eftalou (which was damaged in 2010) suffered further damage. The already collapsed areas have sunk further and more areas have now been sectioned off as they are unsafe.
