• Bad weather. Orange alert on Liguria, Lazio and Piedmont, hail danger in Campania
  • Bad weather, Piedmont on its knees: two dead. Alert in Emilia for the flood of the Po


25 October 2019Full rains and flooding in Sicily due to the bad weather that is raging on the island. The Civil Protection issued a red alert this morning in eastern Sicily and a yellow alert in the western one due to bad weather.

Schools closed in Caltanissetta, Catania, Ragusa and Syracuse. Ferrovie dello Stato has suspended the railway traffic on the Lentini-Caltagirone, Siracusa-Modica-Gela-Canicattì, Canicattì-Caltanissetta and Agrigento-Canicattiì lines. Furthermore, due to the damage due to bad weather, the Palermo-Trapani line, interrupted from 7pm yesterday , will remain closed until 12 today.

Already yesterday evening violent downpours and flooding in different areas of Sicily: particularly affected Mazara del Vallo (Trapani) and Sciacca (Agrigento).

The case of the elderly missing in the Agrigento area, in the area of ​​Licata, where they have been looking for hours in the Salso river, would not be attributable to the bad weather situation in Sicily. For the investigators, the hypothesis of a suicide would instead take shape. Investigate the carabinieri. Meanwhile, research is proceeding relentlessly in the waters of the Salso, in which the divers of Palermo firefighters are participating.
