6 thousand people remained isolated after an avalanche in the Aosta Valley hit a tunnel in the municipality of Gaby, in the province of Aosta. The tunnel is located on regional road 44 in the Lys valley and, due to the fall of an impressive snow avalanche, it has been closed for a few hours now. The two municipalities further upstream are completely isolated from the rest of the region.

Italy is currently affected by a strong wave of bad weather. Cyclone Fedra gives no respite in the North, where, on Monday 4 March 2024, the orange alert has already been triggered, in particular in Piedmont and Emilia Romagna.

It is not just the torrential rains and strong winds that are alarming municipalities and the population. Unfortunately, snow avalanches in the high mountains also create considerable difficulties for citizens. Like the one that broke off in Valle d'Aosta, hitting a regional road in the municipality of Gaby.
