It was the 28th of July 2018, and my parents and I were on holiday in Andros, Greece. We spent the first day on the beach. When I got back to my room, I was really exhausted, so I ate something and I went to bed early. I had no idea that my first day in Andros was also my last!
Just after midnight, a strange noise woke me up. My room was flooded. My parents swam quickly in my room and we all swam out of the house. Lots of people were swimming in the flooded roads. It was too dangerous!
After a while, the water had dried up. We were trapped on the island because there wasn’t an airport or port anymore. Luckily, helicopters came and took us back to Mytilini. I can’t believe that Andros was destroyed. I feel so lucky that we lived to tell the tale.
A frightening experience
