Rain and floods continue to thrash northern Italy


Rome, May 17 - Unseasonably heavy rains continued
to flood parts of northern Italy Friday, killing at least one
person and causing hundreds of millions of euros in damage.
In the Valsugana valley between the Veneto and
Trentino-Alto Adige regions, a landslide blocked the railway
outside Trento.
In Lombardy, 80 people were evacuated from two buildings
whose foundations were weakened by a mudslide along the
Lecco-Bergamo rail line.
Near Verona, a man was found drowned in a flooded
semi-underground garage, while not far away a woman was trapped
in her car buried by a mudslide before being rescued by
firefighters and taken to hospital.
Operators across northern Italy reported emergency lines
were overwhelmed.
Veneto Governor Luca Zaia said he would ask for over half a
billion euros in emergency State assistance.
The bad weather is estimated to last up to another five
days in parts of northern Italy.
