(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.
