Northern and central Italy cleaning up after heavy storms

Southern regions put on bad weather alert

(ANSA) – Rome, November 15 – Southern regions were put on bad weather alert on Thursday as central and northern areas struggled to recover from recent havoc caused by heavy storms. Sicily, Calabria, Basilicata and Puglia were bracing for a new wave of bad weather caused by a low-pressure area pushing up from North Africa, with civil protection authorities warning of heavy rainfall, thunderstorms and strong winds. Meanwhile in Lazio the river Tiber was gradually returning to less dangerous levels on Thursday morning after reaching a 50-year high of 13.49 meters at the Ripetta station in central Rome shortly after midnight. However disruptions to public transport continued due to flooding in some parts of the capital as recovery workers laboured to clear debris that had accumulated at the Milvio bridge and pump water out of the accident and emergency department of the Fatebenefratelli hospital on the Tiber Island.
