6 dead as 70% of Venice is flooded following high winds and highest tide in a decade

Venice flood
Nearly three-quarters of Venice, Italy, was flooded Monday because of a storm system that brought strong winds, driving up water levels more than five feet in the lagoon city, officials said.

High winds push water in from the lagoon, flooding parts of the city frequently, but Monday's levels were far higher than normal. At its peak, Monday's water level reached nearly 61.5 inches, the highest since December 2008. Water levels were forecast to reach 63 inches above normal levels, which would have been the first time that had happened since December 1979.

"A strong low-pressure system is spinning through southern Europe, spreading heavy rain and strong winds across northern Italy," said weather.com meteorologist Chris Dolce. "The strong winds triggered the inundation in Venice as they blew from south to north through the Adriatic Sea."

Mombasa residents and motorists yesterday grappled with flooded streets following heavy rains.

The county administration has been making promises every time it floods, saying it would repair the drainage systems and demolish illegal structures on riparian land.

But when the sun shines, all the promises are forgotten and nothing substantial is done. Another statement is issued when another flood hits.

On Tuesday, the Meteorological Department warned residents of Kwale, Mombasa, Kilifi, Tana River and Lamu of possible flash floods in the next three days.

Torrential rains hit Southern Russia on Wednesday, causing flash flooding and seriously disrupting life in the area. At least two people were killed by the disaster.

The storm and heavy rains affected a long stretch of Black Sea coast - from the town of Dzhubga in the northwest, to the city of Sochi in southeastern parts of the coast. The area is particularly vulnerable to flooding since it is separated from plains further north by Western Caucasus mountain range.

As of Thursday, an elderly couple was reportedly killed in the disaster and one woman is missing, with her family unable to contact her. An evacuation was ordered for about 460 people living in areas most endangered by the flooding. Residents of a small mountain village refused to leave even as the only road connecting it to the outside world was destroyed by water. Emergency services said they will be providing food and other essentials to the 176 people living there.

A man tries to reach a car that has been blocked by ice after a severe hailstorm hit Rome, Italy.
Some strange anomalies are now manifesting over Europe as the Equatorial Vortex and Polar vortex collide with 20C below normal and 20C above normal fronts collide. Climate chaos is an understatement to what has been seen in the last few days and what is expected over the next ten days across the continent. Record rains in Spain, Italy and tornadoes in Cyprus. Hail feet deep paralyses Rome.
