The violent storm that hit Athens on Saturday night has been captured in a dramatic time-lapse video.
The skies over the Greek capital lit up, signaling the end of the unseasonably warm weather Athenians had been enjoying for the last few weeks.
Heavy rains continued on Sunday and Monday morning, causing traffic bottlenecks in many parts of the city.
The fire service received multiple calls to pump out flooded basements of homes and businesses in parts of the city center.
Heavy rain also disrupted a football match on Sunday between Panathinaikos and Xanthi at the former’s home ground on Alexandras Avenue.
Meteorologists say the wet and cool spell will continue for the rest of Monday and Tuesday.
