The Yermasoyia dam became the second in 24 hours to overflow at about 4pm on Sunday.

Earlier in the day the mayor Kyriakos Xydias has said the water flows into the reservoir had indicated it would overflow on Sunday afternoon.

Police and relevant authorities have taken measures at the site so that it is safe to visit.

“The rains and the setting down large quantities of water are a blessing for the land,” Xydias said.

He said officials would watch the in and outflow of the reservoir and possibly close roads if deemed necessary.
