    Greece is being hit by one of the strongest cold waves that have created problems due to the heavy snowfalls, frost, biting cold and gale force winds in the sea. Due to the heavy snowfalls, 20 villages have been cut off in northern Euboea and five in Fokida, while anti-skid chains are a must for vehicles using the biggest part of the country road network in the mainland. The national road network is open, but vehicles heading from Varybobi to Martino, as well as ones in Tempi should carry anti-skid chains. At the same time, long vehicles have been banned from using Attiki Odos. Cars circulating in the centre of Athens and the biggest part of Atticas road network should be equipped with anti-skid chains. The Metro and Tram run smoothly, while the Electric Rail stops at Heraklion station. Bus lines in the northern suburbs are encountering problems, while ships remain docked at ports due to the gale force winds blowing in the sea. All flights from Eleftherios Venizelos airport are running smoothly.
