Storm Ianos: Three dead as rare 'medicane' batters Greece

Storm Ianos
Three people have died after a rare storm known as a "medicane" battered parts of Greece, flooding streets and homes and causing electricity outages.
The Ionian Sea islands of Zakynthos, Kefalonia and Ithaca were all badly hit by Cyclone Ianos on Friday, as winds reaching 100 kilometres per hour (62 miles per hour) damaged buildings, uprooted trees, sank sailboats and left thousands along Greece's western coast without power.

The medicane - a combination of Mediterranean and hurricane - then swept through central Greece, hitting mainly areas around the cities of Karditsa and Farsala, before it moved south to the island of Crete.
