A wildfire has been raging from Monday noon (17/08/2021) at Lavrio, in Eastern Attica, Greece, burning forests, rural and urban areas. The strong wind and high flammability of forest fuels due to prolonged drought, make the work of firefighters very difficult. The residential communities of Agios Konstantinos, Synterina and Markati have been evacuated for precautionary reasons. Copernicus EMS Rapid Mapping is asked to provide First Estimate, Delineation and Grading Products.
