Italy Floods Kills 29


29 people reported to be killed in Italy in the area of Venice due to flash floods caused by torrential rains. High winds and heavy rain have devastated parts of the country over the past week,

causing the worst flooding in at least a decade in Venice, damages of more than 1 billion euros ($1.14 billion) in Veneto and landslides that have cut off villages, authorities said. Around 300,000 trees were flattened after winds swept through the Val d’Assa in the Asiago plateau, Roberto Ciambetti, president of the Veneto regional council announced yesterday. The situation in Sicily is “dramatic,” Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said on Sunday to international media.
