Autumn weather blows into Italy bringing rain and damage


(ANSA) - Rome, September 13 - Stormy autumn weather is
causing damage and transportation delays in parts of northern
Italy and the southern Amalfi coast near Naples, the national
weather service reported on Thursday.
Civil protection relief forces were dispatched 30 times on
Thursday when Trieste's gale-force wind known as the 'Bora'
swept in, driving temperatures down to 10 degrees and flooding
parts of the city and surrounding areas.
Near the southern Amalfi coast, a 50-meter ferry that
connects the island of Capri to the seaside town of Sorrento
struck a rock after being blown off course.
None of the seven crew members were injured and the ferry
was not transporting passengers at the time.
The regional Naples-Salerno train line also experienced
delays due to torrential rains that washed mud and debris onto
the tracks.
Sudden heavy rains caused mudslides that filled the
streets of the town of Castellammare di Stabia near Naples.
City authorities report accumulations of sludge and water
of up to 30 centimeters throughout the town's streets and its
main square Piazza Monumento.
