A forest fire broke out in 14-09-2019 near Loutraki City, 65 Km West from Athens. The rough terrain and the strong winds made the job of fire-fighters more difficult and carried the fire further. For precautionary reasons, the Monastery of Osios Patapios and one

Elderly hospital located near the fire front were evacuated. Copernicus EMS Mapping products will be used for damage assessment, recovery rand restoration planning of the affected area and for future flood

protection measures.
