Half of Europe shaken by the storm that leaves twelve dead in Italy


A chaotic landscape in Italy, where Storm Adrian leaves a trail of at least twelve dead.



From north to south and east to west, the material damage is significant and tens of thousands of people were still without light at the end of this Tuesday.

Rome, Naples, not forgetting Bolzano and Venice. With the famous Piazza San Marco, flooded with tourists and water that has exceeded a meter and a half, for the sixth time in the recent history of the city of canals. The firemen had carried out until 18:00 plus 9,000 interventions with 6,000 troops deployed throughout the Italian territory. The Veneto and Liguria regions are still the most affected.

In the middle of the Mediterranean, Corsica has seen the wind blow like never before, with gusts of more than 160 kilometres per hour that have wreaked havoc in the port of Ajaccio. Almost at the same time, the first heavy snowfalls paralysed several motorways and general roads in France, in the regions of the Upper Loire and Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. Trucks and cars blocked, surprised by the storm.

No less surprised are in some countries of Central Europe, case of Hungary.

This Tuesday in Budapest the maximum temperature of 21ºC was reached. Full terraces, an ideal time to enjoy a walk on the banks of the Danube or admire the beauty of the Chain Bridge.
