High winds, rain wreak havoc in Italy

ADVERTISEMENT

Strong winds and heavy rain ran over Italy this week, killing 11 people in landslides, rising floodwaters, tornadoes, fallen trees, and rough surf.

Winds of up to 110 mph were reported and several tornadoes were spotted south of Rome, according to news reports. Some of the worst weather, however, was reported in Liguria in the northwest. Genoa is in the center of Liguria. The breakwater wall in Rapallo just to the east of Genoa were destroyed, damaging yachts and the port area.

Rising waters submerged about 75 percent of Venice, according to government officials there.

Meteorologists expect the extreme weather to continue.
