  • Description

    A SCAR RUNNING DOWN A MOUNTAINSIDE NEAR TRENTO INDICATES THE START OF A LANDSLIDE WHICH BEGAN ON TUESDAY, BURYING CARS,B LOCKING ROADS AND THREATENING HOMES.

    ABOUT 300 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ORDERED TO LEAVE 40 HOUSES THREATENED BY A FURTHER LANDSLIDE FROM THE MOUNTAIN. THE TROUBLE HAS BEEN CAUSED BY THE HEAVY, CONTINUOUS RAIN WHICH HAS FALLEN THROUGHOUT THE REGION FOR MANY DAYS.

    COMMUNICATIONS HAVE BEEN SEVERELY DISRUPTED WITH ROADS AND RAILWAYS EITHER FLOODED OR BLOCKED WITH DEBRIS. CARS AND LORRIES HAVE BEEN ABANDONED BY THEIR DRIVERS, AND POLICE HAVE HAD DIFFICULTY IN REMOVING THE VEHICLES.

    ELSEWHERE IN NORTHERN ITALY, FLOODWATERS HAVE FORCED THE EVACUATION OF SEVERAL VILLAGES. TRIBUTARIES OF THE PO RIVER HAVE REACHED THEIR HIGHEST LEVEL IN 35 YEARS. NEAR PAVIA, AN ELDERLY FARMER WAS SWEPT AWAY WHEN A CANAL OVERFLOWED, WHILE NEAR MILAN, FIREMEN EVACUATED 150 FAMILIES FROM FLOODED COTTAGES.
