Thunderstorms, hailstorms and harsh winds swept across western Greece this weekend, causing floods and transport disruptions.

It has been reported that two men on a sailing boat were capsized by strong winds and have not yet been found.

“The boat of the two missing persons sank from the strong winds in the pier of Antirio town,” a coast guard official told Reuters.

The Greek civil protection service has urged municipal authorities to be on the alert as the adverse weather is expected to move eastward by Monday night.

The area of Antirio has been most effected with investigations continuing to find the two men.
