Under Water: Venice Hit By Severe Flooding
- Published on Nov 12, 2012 by ATOZTOPNEWS
Days of relentless rain have left more than two-thirds of the lagoon city submerged, as hundreds of people flee their homes.
Heavy rain and strong winds have led to 70% of Venice being flooded, while some 200 people were evacuated from their homes in Tuscany because of severe weather.
Authorities said sea levels in the lagoon city reached a peak of 5ft (1.5 metres) above normal before receding slightly.
This marked the sixth-highest level since records began in 1872, Italian news agency ANSA said.
