Cyclone Ianos (satellite image shown) stalls over Greece, killing four people and flooding several cities.
Cyclone Ianos, also known as Medicane Ianos, was a rare Mediterranean tropical-like cyclone (medicane), that impacted Greece on 17 and 18 September 2020. Ianos developed from an area of low pressure over the Gulf of Sidra that quickly began tropical cyclogenesis while moving over warm waters. After receiving various names from different meteorological centers, the storm, dubbed Ianos by the Greeks, rapidly intensified while moving northeast. After scraping Italy, the storm went on to hit Malta and Crete with tropical storm-force winds. Despite land interaction, the small cyclone reached its peak intensity of 120 km/h (75 mph) on 18 September, immediately before making landfall in southwestern Greece. See more on Cyclone Ianos
