Hundreds of people were rescued from floods in Greece overnight and early on Thursday, officials said, as a new storm hit the country just weeks after floods left 17 dead.

The storm also hit the island of Evia, prompting emergency traffic restrictions in the north of the island. Much of Volos was without electricity and sections of the local hospital flooded, though the facility remained operational. Volos, a city of nearly 140,000, was still struggling to recover from Storm Daniel, which three weeks ago dumped cataclysmic amounts of rain in central Greece.
