Air Force video of helicopter rescue in Kalogeros

For two afternoons the 384 Search and Rescue Squadron of the Hellenic Air Force has been yanking people out of areas in the Skopelos countryside. The video from the team is impressive. Though temperatures have moderated (4º now here at 100 meters above sea level) and it appears that there will be sun today – passage is still difficult. Paths trekked through the snow earlier in the week have frozen and getting anywhere is a lot of work, even for us close to the village. Some Army units are clearing bigger roads outside the town. Electricity is intermittent. Yesterday the older power system was activated which provided some electricity as the modern (more powerful) system was still damaged. Today we shall see what happens. The mighty ferry boat Proteus has been dutiful and goods are making it to the markets.
