Dust levels return to normal

Dust levels are back to normal after days of being very high, which caused schools to suspend excursions and outdoor exercises.

In two cases, the fire services were called to help with fallen trees, in Goudi and Prodromi.

A basement in Chlorakas was also flooded.

On Thursday the weather will be cloudy with local rains and isolated storms early in the morning.

Winds are forecast to be strong and the sea is going to be turbulent.
