The government has taken a series of relief measures for those affected by last week’s torrential rain in western Attica, government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos said on Monday, adding that a draft law is expected to be passed into law later in the day.
Tzanakopoulos underlined that the process to compensate households and businesses for damage caused by the extreme weather conditions will begin as soon as the damage is recorded.
He explained that there will be financial support for accommodation and food, as well as compensation for home appliances and professional equipment.
«All households that have suffered damage in the areas of western Attica will receive 5,000 euros in emergency aid, while companies will receive 8,000 euros,» he stressed.
The same measures will also apply for flood victims on the islands of Symi and Samothrace, as well as in the area of Aghia in Larissa and the coast of Katerini.
