Rare winter storm in Greece leaves scores of drivers stuck in their vehicles

Greece shut down non-essential services on Tuesday and called a public holiday as the country battled a rare winter storm that left scores of people trapped in their vehicles.

The army and fire brigade were called in to help rescue people stranded in their vehicles on main thoroughfares in Athens.

People forced to evacuate their vehicles were told to seek shelter at the Athens Airport.

“The situation is hopeless. They should be ashamed for this mess,” one driver said of the situation.

The storm, named Elpida, was forecast to persist into Wednesday.
