EU warns Italy to improve flood-prevention plans

Brussels, November 21 - The European Commission on
Wednesday sent Italy a "reasoned opinion" - the second step in a
judicial process - on the shortcoming of the country's flood
prevention plans.
The reasoned opinion is a step in the process leading to
the European Court of Justice.
EU countries are required to analyze flood risks and
develop contingency plans, but the European Commission's step
suggests Italy has not done enough to prepare in the event of a
catastrophic flood.
Just last week the banks of the Tiber in Rome nearly
overflowed after weeks of battering rain throughout the country
that killed several and caused hundreds of millions of euros in
damage.
Wednesday's measure implies the Commission is preparing to
take Italy to the Court of Justice to force it to improve its
disaster plans.
Rome has two months to reply.
