Rome, November 12 - The European Commission on
Monday agreed to give 18 million euros from solidarity funds for
flood damage suffered a year ago in central Italy.
The announcement followed a request by the Italian
government for funding to pay for the emergency response to
deadly flooding in Liguria and Tuscany on October 25 and October
26, 2011.
The money is to be used to pay for the restoration of
electrical, water, and sewer equipment and infrastructure, as
well as road repair and cleaning in damaged areas.
The area is once again at risk of further damage amid heavy
flooding.
Severe storms lashed central and northern Italy over the
weekend and into Monday, creating floods, damage and
evacuations, especially in Tuscany and Italy's northeast
regions.
In Tuscany, where one man was killed by floods, the
provinces of Grosseto, Siena, and Arezzo remained on a high
state of alert after 200 mm of rain fell on the weekend.
An additional 80 mm of rain was expected Monday.
