Roads begin to drain

26 October 2012

Both sides of the capital, Nicosia, endured substantial flooding after heavy downpours left roads almost impassable. 32mm of rain measured by the Met office on Thursday was compounded by further rains during the night. The problem has been exacerbated by blocked storm drains from refuse left in the streets during a council workers strike last week.

In the South, roads were left in a similar state as councils deployed additional staff to assist with freeing up storm drains to help the water subside.
