Cyprus dams to overflow on Friday 27th January 2012 – a date for your diary!
It seems the rain is either good news or bad – depending on which way you look at it. From an article in the Cyprus-Mail online newspaper today (26th January 2012)
To top it all, the Asprokemnos Dam near the airport in Paphos is very soon expected to overflow. They reckon it will happen on Friday 27th January 2012. Check out the video below taken by Lloyd (a member of the Cyprus Living forum) yesterday 25th January and don’t miss the ice-cream vans and Loukoumades (honey ball) sellers on there. It looks like a real carnival atmosphere!
We missed the last “overflows” as we arrived in Cyprus just a couple of weeks after they let loose in February 2004. It seems we’re experiencing the 2nd wettest winter in 100 years.
If it carries on much longer – it WILL be the wettest. I’m truly fed up of it now!
