Three more killed in wave of bad weather

Florence, November 13 - The wave of bad weather that has gripped large areas of central and northern Italy since the weekend claimed three more lives overnight. Prosecutors from the Tuscan city of Grosseto said three employees of Italian energy company ENEL were dead after the car they were travelling in was swept away in the area of a bridge that collapsed when torrential rain caused the Albegna river to overflow. The three, who were killed near the Grosseto province town of Marsiliana d'Albegna, were said to have been on their way to a job. Heavy rain was also blamed for the death of a 73-year-old man whose car was was swept away by waters from the Chiarone river in the same area on Monday. The storms and heavy rain have created floods, damage and evacuations in many parts of Italy, especially in Tuscany and northeastern regions. Most of Venice was flooded on Monday, including St Mark's Square, and tourists in swimming costumes posed for pictures chest high in water at cafe tables.
