My region has been hit by some heavy rain which caused destruction and death. Some hills slid down, some rivers overflowed.

Ten people died in Cinque Terre area (close to La Spezia), 6 people died in Genoa.

Half of my region is destroyed. That's so sad. Sad

Here are some videos.

GENOA:
Genoa downtown - This is Genoa's main street (the river overflowed and inundated downtown)

The water went up to the 2nd story of buildings. Now the mud left is up to the first story of buildings

This is so sad. There isn't much we can do except pray that it stops and the poor people that are left recover. I am sure that the Italain-American club in New York City and/or the Italian program at Queens College in New York City will be having a fundraiser like they did for the earthquake in L'Aquila (sp?). There are also videos of flooding on Napoli and Sardegna.

I've really been worrying about you and a friend that I have in Genoa.

So so sad to see all that destruction. It must have been like living in a nightmare I know what its like to clean up after a flood, when my s-i-l was flooded but it was nothing on that scale. Just to watch those cars etc being swept away - just horrible! The clenaing up facing those poor people will be terrible. my thoughts and prayers are with them all. Simy I hope you are OK andGil I hope the friend you have in Genoa is ok too.
