Weather warning issued for western Greece as ‘Bogdan’ closes in
The Meteo weather service from the National Observatory issued a warning on Tuesday. Strong downpours and winds are coming from Italy to western Greece.
A storm system called a "Medicane" is expected to develop today. This storm may have some characteristics of a tropical cyclone.
There is a storm coming and it will be bad. It is going to hit some islands in the Ionian Sea that have been damaged by storms like this before. It will also hit the western part of mainland Greece, including Epirus.
This means that residents and visitors in these areas are advised to stay indoors during the peak of the storm, to secure any objects that may be a hazard, to stay away from the beach and to refrain from sailing, among other such precautions.
Heavy rain should fall in Macedonia, Thessaly, Thrace and the northern Aegean islands, according to Meteo.

The remains of a storm from the north are set to hit later this week, bringing with it miserable wind and rain. A storm is coming and it will be wet.
A lot of the bad weather we've been having lately is because of low pressure from tropical storms over the Atlantic. The deputy chief meteorologist at the Met Office told The Sun on Friday that a deeper area of low pressure would move into the northwest of the UK.
The met office has issued a yellow-rainfall warning for tomorrow."This means that it will rain a lot tomorrow and it will be windy. The met office has issued a yellow-rainfall warning, which means that people should be careful. However, this is nothing unusual for the time of year.
“At this time of year, the effects of the Atlantic tropical cyclone season can make it difficult to forecast rainfall and wind strengths more than a few days in advance. As a result, the exact timings and strengths may vary throughout the week.” The rest of the week is not going to be good either.
Today, cold, heavy showers are expected. Cold northerly winds are expected to bring low night-time temperatures in the UK from Tuesday. More exposed areas of North Wales and the West Midlands will see windy conditions as the rain falls. Conditions will also be wet in the afternoon in the far South-West.
Rain from last night's storm will clear out of the far southwest today, but showers will continue elsewhere, especially in eastern and western coastal areas and northern Scotland. The weather on Wednesday is expected to be sunny with some showers in coastal areas.

Do I need to bring my own mask or other requirements to the public shelters?
If you are going to be in a public shelter, it is important to be prepared to wear a mask. You should pack enough masks for everyone in your house.
