A sudden rainstorm on the island of Syros on Sunday afternoon turned roads into rushing rivers and had beach goers and swimmers running to seek shelter from the storm.
The morning was sunny and nothing would hint that the weather would change all of a sudden.
The summer storm lasted about 20 minutes and its main features were very strong rainfall, storn wind and in some areas of the island also hail.
