Beginning of last year, we reported that the lagoons of Venice had almost dried up. Nine months later, today, nearly three-quarters of Venice, Italy, was flooded because of a storm system that brought strong winds, driving up water levels more than five feet in the lagoon city.

High winds push water in from the lagoon, flooding parts of the city frequently, but Monday’s levels were far higher than normal. At its peak, Monday’s water level reached nearly 61.5 inches, the highest since December 2008. Water levels were forecast to reach 63 inches above normal levels, which would have been the first time that had happened since December 1979.

A strong low-pressure system is spinning through southern Europe, spreading heavy rain and strong winds across northern Italy,” said weather.com meteorologist Chris Dolce. “The strong winds triggered the inundation in Venice as they blew from south to north through the Adriatic Sea.

The storm system was blamed for at least six deaths nationwide. Wind damage that brought down trees and sent objects airborne was to blame for the deaths.

Venice Mayor Luigi Brugnaro said a series of underwater barriers being erected in the lagoon, known as the MOSE Project, would have prevented the inundation. The project is long overdue, beset by cost overruns and corruption scandals.

MOSE would indeed have helped with this particular event,” said Bob Henson, weather and climate blogger for Weather Underground. “The water levels today reached 61.5 inches, which would have triggered the 43.3-inch gate closing of MOSE.

Brugnaro said he had requested to speak with the Premier Giuseppe Conte to underline the urgency of the project, which would raise barriers when the tide reaches 43 inches. That happens on average four times a year.

The public transport company closed the water taxi service due to the emergency, with connections remaining active only to the outlying islands. The city, built on a series of islands, deals with the high water by erecting a series of risers that permit people to circulate by foot. Residents and businesses typically reinforce doors with metal or wooden panels to prevent water from entering bottom floors.

Much of Italy is under alert for flooding from heavy rains, a problem exacerbated by a lack of maintenance of river beds.

Veneto regional governor Luca Zaia says flooding could reach the levels of the 1966 flood that struck both Venice and Florence. In a message on Instagram, he called off schools in the region for a second day on Tuesday.

  1. The sea level increases in that area when mixed with the rain …
    If this continues in the same way Venice would be submerged in the sea.

  2. Storms built in the US and directed to certain locations around the world to push the climate change agenda,, all weather is controled!

  3. So that’s where these chemtrail/harp pieces of crap have dumped our water. In Italy!
    Probably as punishment for not wanting to take in Moslem barbarian hordes to destroy their country.
    Give us back our water in Australia! We’re onto you’re weather warfare & robbery of our water causing drought here & floods there.
    To much tech is mad scientists hands & nefarious hidden govt agencies gone insane on power.

  4. Now a days, Venice means the city of tourism. But to me, Venice means the origin of the evil secret society and Reptilian dynasty roots, such as Windsor Dynasty in Britain. It is quite famous and many people know recently, Queen Elizabeth is NOT a human, but a cannibal Reptilian, shape-shifting as a human. It is natural that Venice and Italy are the prime targets of Galactic Federation of Light in order to get rid of those cannibal Reptilians from the Earth. Venice is also the origin of Rothschild Dynasty.

    “More than a hundred super yachts, including one belonging to former FM Silvio Berlusconi, and many simpler boats in an Italian port city were wrecked by a storm overnight leaving millions worth in damage.”

    Obviously, this was an attack from Galactic Federation of Light. Former Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi is a member of Black Nobility. His Luxury yacht has been destroyed. I tell you Italy is the origin of all sorts of evil including Roman Empire and the House of Windsor. All of them are cannibal Reptilians.

    All 5 people on board are dead. Sports are very primitive just for cave people. On upper dimension, there is NO competition like sports. Those sports promoters including owners of sport teams are evil Illuminati cannibal Reptilians.
