Requiem for Samos...



Since last night Samos is burning again, it looks that the big catastrophy of the year 2000 will be repeated... It is so pitty.

  1. Oh no!
    We had a bad forest fire right next to our village in the hills on Sunday, so I can certainly sympathize with you. But your fire looks much worse.
    I pray that they will get it under control soon.
    Take care!

  4. Oh no, what a tragedy! Are the firefighters making any progress?

    I remember the horror stories my friends in Thassos would tell me, they lost their house in a massive wildfire 20-odd years ago.

    Why does this always happen during tourist season, is it arson?

    Wishing you safe.

  7. It is a pity. It happens around Sydney almost every summer too, so I know how destructive bushfires are.

  19. Don't panic and please don't compare this fire with the one of the year 2000!
    Every year there are fires on Samos and in July 2010 there have been two large fires within a week.
    But was has changed dramatically since the devastating fire of the year 2000 is the strenght of the firefighting powers on Samos.
    Much better trained, coordinated and equipped nowadays!!
