Rome, August 20 - Central Italy was hit by
rainstorms on Monday night and Tuesday.
Torrential rainstorms struck Rome where streets in the
northern part of the capital were closed to traffic due to
flooding and fallen trees.
Heavy storms also hit Tuscany overnight, in particular
Florence where lightning struck trees around the pediatric Meyer
hospital, starting a small blaze which was immediately
extinguished by fire police.
Heavy rainstorms were also reported across the island of
Sardinia, a major tourist area in August, with bad weather
forecast until Friday.
Rainstorms are expected on Wednesday and Thursday in the
island, meteorologist Giovanni Brescia told ANSA, "especially in
the afternoon".
Rainstorms were also expected to hit the southern Campania
region later on Tuesday.
