Attention for all of those driving south from Heraklion. Part of the brandnew road is gone after the recent rainstorm.

That looks dreadful! Surely this shouldn't have happened even with the heavy rain? Presumably the roads are built to withstand earthquakes, so they should be strong enough for rain. I know this was an exceptionally heavy storm and hopefully when it's rebuilt it will be made stronger as this isn't unknown in Crete during the winter.
