On September 8, 2016, a tornado formed on the Ionian Sea and made landfall at Ionian Village, the home of the Archdiocesan Summer Camp in Greece, inflicting massive damage upon the camp. Thankfully, no one was injured, but the damage to the camp was substantial. The picture below illustrates some of the damage that was sustained. To learn more about the damage and ongoing rebuilding efforts, you can visit Ionian Village's tornado FAQs web page.
