The death toll rises as as rescue teams search for survivors. Rainfall in parts of Evia reached 80% of the annual total for the area in the space of a few hours overnight from Saturday to Sunday, Greece’s meteorological service said. A river burst through its banks and flooded part of the village of Politika, forcing many residents to climb to the rooftops of their homes. Another river in the village of Bourtzi also burst its banks. Authorities estimated that 3,000 homes had been partially or totally damaged by floodwaters, and police said many roads were impassable.
