    Background: Thirty-six people are so far estimated to have lost their lives in the Italian floods. In the Lombardy plain, the Po river is rising at the rate of two inches an hour. Lodi, sited between the rivers Adda and Lambro, is completely cut off, and villagers have taken to living in the upper floors of their houses.

    At least nine lives were lost during a deluge in the coastal area near Tarquini, north of Rome, Sept 19. Thousands of acres of the surrounding countryside are buried under nine feet of mud and debris.

    Damage caused by torrential rain of extreme force in the Tarquinia area, will require months of work to repair ...when the rain eventually stops. Some 10 miles of road surface has been damaged or buried, and bridges over the rivers Marta and Aarone were destroyed.

    A mass of rock sliding down the mountainside above the village of Schilpario, near Lake Como, threatens the safety of the 1,900 inhabitants.

    The Brenner Pass between Italy and Austria was blocked by a landslide Sept 19, according to reports from Bolzano, centre of one of the worst affected areas.
