But it was in fact, the submerged central city of Karditsa, left battered by Storm "Ianos".
The rare storm is described as a "medicane" - a combination of Mediterranean and hurricane, as it has similar features to hurricanes and typhoons.
Storm Ianos was moving at a speed of 100 kph (62 mph) before hitting the island of Lefkada on Friday morning, according to the Hellenic National Meteorological Service.
Schools and stores were closed, and ferry services were suspended in many areas in western Greece as authorities advised residents to remain indoors.
A rare storm, known as a Medicane (Mediterranean hurricane), hit western Greece on Friday, flooding streets, uprooting trees and causing power cuts in the Ionian islands of Kefalonia, Zakynthos and Ithaca.
Later, authorities said a 63-year-old man was found dead near a hospital in Karditsa.
Authorities said a woman who ignored warnings not to drive into an area near a bridge is also missing. It was not immediately clear whether he was among the two people reported missing.
The local rescue services have also claimed that they received around 60 calls for aid, but numerous calls were for help to cut down trees and pump out water from flooded properties.
The Ionian Islands andd western Greece are on high alert for Ianos, which is expected to make its way eastwards to Attica by midday Friday.
Roads and fields around Karditsa, one of Greece's biggest plains - around 125 miles (200km) north of Athens, were swamped with water. So far, there have been no reports of injuries or deaths, but a significant amount of property damage can be seen even in the limited local footage.
The storm also forced two Ryanair planes to land in Athens instead of Kefalonia. A year ago, flash floods killed 25 people and displaced hundreds of people in western Athens.
