Heavy rain, snow pounds Italy


Rome, January 31 - Heavy rain and snow pounded much
of Italy Friday as Pisa and Florence braced for serious flooding
around the Arno River.
Public offices in Pisa faced closures as the river reached
levels unseen in 20 years, forcing emergency workers to erect
barriers and reinforce banks to channel water to the sea.
Streets leading into the center of the city were blocked
off as a safety precaution.
Meanwhile small towns outside Florence and nearby Prato
were virtually surrounded by rising flood water as schools
closed for the day.
The capital Rome also experienced heavy rain, especially in
the north of the city where at least one subway stop was closed
for flooding and where traffice was snarled by rising water and
fallen tree limbs.
Near the northern city of Belluno, schools were closed for
excessive snow.
