ARGOS, Greece, Dec. 2 (UPI) -- A rain-driven flash flood collapsed a wall at a home in Argos, Greece, killing a 55-year-old woman who lived in a basement apartment, authorities said.

The woman was not identified in a report Monday from Ekathimerini.com.

The rain caused two rivers in the town to run over their banks, the report said.

Dozens of firefighters were called in to pump water out of basements in the region, the report said.
