Skip to comments.Greece: Devastated by major fires, survivors urgently need help
Posted on 07/30/2018 4:08:13 PM PDT by Texas Fossil
Greece has declared a state of emergency after multiple wildfires burned out of control on either side of Athens. The fires reportedly just burst out in the forests near the seaside towns outside the Greek capital, prompting thousands of people to flee for their lives. Many jumped into the sea for survival to escape the flames. According to the Greek media, several of the dead had drowned.
The wildfires have left Greece with a devastating aftermath, as the death toll has climbed to 91 people, with nearly 200 injured, and many are in critical condition. Twenty more are missing. Relatives and friends of the missing are constantly being uploaded online. One of the most publicized cases of missing people involved the nine-year-old twins, Sofia and Vasiliki Philipopoulou. After a few days passed, their distraught father thought he saw them on television, but it turned out to have been a false hope. Ultimately they were located, burned to death while hugging their grandparents. Hundreds of homes have been destroyed or seriously damaged including an Orthodox orphanage. Forty-five kids were forced to evacuate before the flames engulfed the premises of the foundation. They are temporarily housed in other childrens institutions in the area, reported the news website, the Greek Reporter. Frantic relatives headed to the Athens morgue to seek the fate of loved ones still missing. Many of the bodies were burned beyond recognition, reported the newspaper Kathimerini.
