It has never rained so much in such a short period of time in 50 years in Tuscany! Seven people died in the severe storm.
Videos on social media now show the full extent of the huge storm: recordings show meter-high waves crashing onto the coast of Vernazza. The water that passes through the city streets leaves behind destruction and chaos. Portofino also had to contend with large amounts of water.
Storm Ciara caused devastation in many parts of Europe. A German woman lost her life when a branch fell in Belgium – and even a cruise ship was not spared. 100 people were injured due to turbulence in the open sea.
