Following deadly wildfires in Greece that killed at least 83 people northeast of Athens, our partners at Lost Athina visited Mati, a coastal resort town and the epicenter of the destruction caused over Monday night.
The Athens-based content creators shared a video on their Facebook page showing vivid images of devastation that occurred due to the tragic wildfires, which are the worst to strike Greece in more than a decade.
In the caption, the group wrote:
“The images are shocking and heartbreaking, and serve as a reminder that we should all assist in any way we can.”
