    Background: FREEZING WEATHER IN THE DOLOMITES HAS BROUGHT UNEXPECTED RELIEF FROM THREATS OF FLOODS AND LANDSLIDES IN MANY VILLAGES. THE VILLAGES WERE SUBMERGED BY RAGING FLOODWATER LESS THAN A MONTH AGO, AND WERE FEARING MORE FLOODING AND MUD-SLIDES.

    HOWEVER, SUDDEN COLD WEATHER HAS TRANSFORMED SCENES OF DESPAIR AND DEVASTATION INTO VIEWS OF 'CHRISTMAS CARD' PICTURESQUENESS.

    THE VILLAGE OF CENCENIGUE WAS ONE OF THE DOLOMITE TOWNS RAVAGED BY FLOODS. MANY BUILDINGS IN THE VILLAGE WERE SEVERELY DAMAGED, AND IN DANGER OF TOPPLING.

    SINCE THE FLOODS WORKMEN HAVE BEEN ANXIOUSLY MAKING REPAIRS AND TEMPORARILY RESTORING HOUSES. THERE WAS A DANGER OF MUD FOLLOWING THE FLOODWATERS.

    BUT THIS HAZARD HAS BEEN AVERTED BY THE EARLY ARRIVAL OF WINTER. THE MUD IS NOW FROZEN SOLID, AND IS EXPECTED TO DISPERSE GRADUALLY DURING THE THAW.

    CENCENIGUE IS STILL CLEANING UP AFTER THE FLOOD, AND THE PEOPLE OF THE AREA ARE RECEIVING ASSISTANCE FROM THE INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS AND OTHER RELIEF ORGANISATIONS.
