  • Description

    The floods in the lower Po valley seem at a standstill today - neither advancing nor retreating.

    A vast zone of land, grey, drear and bleak, is now under water; and the Ca'Tiepolo power station seems in great danger from the floods.

    All of 9000 square metres of amble land are beneath the waters, and some 2500 square metres in the Po Valley, in the neighbourhood of Camerino, have been cleared of all inhabitants and animals and livestock.

    In many places the boat is the only means of communication now; while gangs of workers toil to build defences against the water and to drain areas where possible.
