Structures collapse as weather adds to ILVA plant troubles


(see related story on bad weather)
Taranto, November 28 - Bad weather added to the
troubles of the ILVA steel plant in Taranto on Wednesday, when
high winds caused a tower and a building at the facility to
collapse and a chimney was knocked down by a lightning bolt.
The company said that "at the moment there are no reports
of injuries at the site".
There were, however, reports of around 20 people being hurt
in the area because of furious winds that also caused services
on the Taranto-Bari train route to be halted.
The plant is threatened with permanent closure as a result
of a criminal probe into allegations emissions from it have led
to abnormal levels of tumours and respiratory diseases in the
Taranto area.
The government has said it will try to pass measures that
will make it possible to keep Italy's biggest steel plant
operating while a clean-up operation takes place.
