People have been water skiing and kayaking down the main street of Protaras in Cyprus after torrential rains turned roads into waterways.

According to the AFP news agency, heavy rains overnight and this morning left the town flooded.

Posts on social media show that locals are never phased by what is thrown at them, and have taken to the streets to enjoy the floods – not something that is often seen in Cyprus.

The flooding comes on the same day as California reports major flooding and the UK snow, ice and heavy rains. Flood warnings remain in place for both California and large parts of the UK as of Monday morning, January 16.
