Orange weather alert
« on: October 22, 2018, 12:19:32 PM »
Il Meteo has issued an orange weather alert because of heavy rain in Teramo,Pescara and Chieti regions and some schools are closed because of flood risk.

Stay safe!

Well it started raining heavily here (Civitella Casanova) mid-afternoon yesterday & it's still going. We went into Pescara earlier today & it's pretty grim out there. Lots of roads have rivers running down them, there are quite a few (minor) landslides with tractors out shovelling the stuff back, lots of flooded fields & lots of deep puddles / lakes in the road to catch out the unwary. Plus, it's only 9C here & it's looking unlikely to improve.

Let's hope that's all the foul weather over before next summer.  ;D

In fact, if it's 9C & wet down here, it must be snowing high up...

Seems like we've been lucky according to this BBC report.

A new alert, this time for the south of Abruzzo

“Maltempo, anche l’Abruzzo tra le regioni di maggior allerta. Allarme nella Marsica e nel bacino dell’alto Sangro”
