Unusual Atmospheric Phenomenon in Athens

Strong southerly winds recently swept dust from the Sahara Desert, creating a surreal Martian-like filter over the Greek capital. Locals were astounded by the orange skies that blanketed the city as the sunlight dwindled. Meteorologists predict that the skies will clear as the wind direction shifts, with a subsequent decrease in temperatures.

Wildfires and Environmental Impact

The persistent strong southerly winds have not only caused the atmospheric anomaly but also exacerbated unseasonal wildfires in southern Greece. Within a span of 24 hours, 25 wildfires ignited across the country. Fortunately, authorities swiftly responded, and no significant damage or injuries were reported. However, the incidents serve as a stark reminder of the looming threat of summer forest fires in Greece.

Efforts to Combat Wildfires

  • Earlier this week, three individuals were apprehended on Paros Island for suspected involvement in igniting a scrub blaze.
  • Firefighters successfully contained a fire near a naval base in Crete, averting potential disaster.
  • Greece, known for its devastating summer wildfires, remains on high alert as dry conditions and elevated temperatures persist, heightening the risk of further blazes.
