Italy’s northwestern region of Liguria suffers from floods and landslides

Heavy rain has hit the northwestern region of Italy bordering France and caused floods and landslides. No casualties have been reported. In Liguria, the city of Savona on the coast was the hardest hit Monday.

Towns in the hilly interior of the region were also affected by flooding and landslides, as some rivers overflowed their banks. In the town of Quiliano, a bridge collapsed. Italian news reported that the COVID-19 vaccination center in Campobasso was closed as a precaution.

The port city of Genoa closed schools and ordered parks and cemeteries closed. At noon, the rain eased off. But more downpours were forecast for Monday.
