Incendiu puternic pe insula grecească Samos. Mai multe hoteluri, evacuate

Mai multe hoteluri şi reşedinţe situate pe insula Samos din Grecia au fost evacuate preventiv din cauza unui incendiu major izbucnit joi, potrivit Dpa, citată de Agerpres. Grecia, o destinație preferată de români în această perioadă, se confruntă în această perioadă cu un val de caniculă și un risc ridicat de incendii.

Presa locală a relatat vineri că zona Agios Fanourios de pe coasta nordică a insulei a fost cea mai grav afectată.

Incendiul a izbucnit joi la prânz, însă nici până la acest moment echipele de intervenție ajutate de elicoptere şi de avioane speciale nu au reușit să-l stingă.

Temperaturi extreme în Grecia

Miercuri, ministerul român al Afacerilor Externe (MAE), a transmis o atenționare de călătorie, avertizând că mai multe regiuni din Grecia se confruntă cu un val caniculă și un risc ridicat de incendii.

”Regiunile cele mai afectate vor fi pe continent, inclusiv în regiunea Attica și în capitala Atena, cele mai ridicate temperaturi atingând 38°… 40° C. În insule și în zonele de pe malul mării, temperaturile vor fi cu 3 – 5 grade mai scăzute”, au transmis reprezentanții MAE.

Temperaturile extrem de ridicate au provocat numeroase incendii în Grecia, în numeroase zone acestea fiind înteţite de rafalele puternice de vânt.

În total, 51 de incendii de pădure şi de vegetaţie au fost raportate în ultimele 24 ore, a indicat vineri dimineaţă pe Twitter departamentul de pompieri.

Insula Samos, din estul Mării Egee, a fost afectată în mod deosebit de incendii în ultimele două decenii, cu excepţia anului 2016.

Între timp, în Cipru, temperaturile sunt aşteptate să ajungă în weekend la 41 de grade Celsius în zonele din centrul insulei, potrivit Oficiului Meteorologic din Cipru.

Copiii şi bătrânii au fost sfătuiţi să rămână în case, a declarat un meteorolog, vineri, pentru televiziunea de stat.

Medicii au recomandat populaţiei să evite alcoolul şi băuturile îndulcite cu zahăr, să consume multă apă şi să limiteze expunerea la soare la doar câteva minute.
