Storm Gyrionis has caused damage around Greece.

An elderly, bed-ridden woman, 75, became the third victim of the storms sweeping through Greece on Sunday and Monday after torrential rains flooded areas of Rhodes.

The woman died in the house where she lived in alone at Ialysos after it flooded on Monday evening. Water rose above the height of her bed causing her to drown.
