Greek authorities evacuated all the residents in Euboea Island on Thursday amid a new wave of wildfires that erupted on the island.
Greece is currently facing unstable, and bad weather conditions due to heavy storms that hit the state two days ago.
The storms caused several floods in the streets, in addition to, several power outages across the country.
It is worthy to mention that Greece saw devastating waves of wildfires across the state in August, some of them reached suburban nearby the Capital, Athens.
After the fires, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis apologized to the public as the state failed in controlling and stopping the wildfires that erupted all over the state.
Mitsotakis said in his latest speech: “Any failures will be identified. And the responsibilities will be assigned whenever and wherever it is needed. The first issue, right now, is solutions.”
“…We are facing a natural disaster of unprecedented proportions: in a few days, 586 fires broke out in all corners of Greece. Fires which, due to the unprecedented heat and the many months of drought, are now very difficult to extinguish,” he continued.
Next, the prime minister reflected that the main reason for such crisis is the current global warming and climate change that affect the whole world.
He described: “It is obvious that the climate crisis is now knocking on the door of the whole planet, with fires that last for weeks,” adding, “We may have done what was humanly possible, but in many cases this did not seem to be enough in the unequal battle with nature.”
After that, the Greek official asserted that the main target for authorities and firefighters is saving the lives of people, in addition to, assisting in all evacuation plans.
