Dramatic video shows the extent of flooding in the town of Mouzaki, near Karditsa, where entire roadways have been flooded, and bridges and buildings have collapsed, including the health clinic, pictured above.

Ianos brought the deadly flooding to the region late Friday night, after heavy rainfall overwhelmed nearby rivers, leaving to strong currents rushing through much of Thessaly.
